Meet Cynthia Parker, the Administrative Assistant at ASI and “The Voice” of ASI. Cynthia has been with ASI for over 20 years where she is often the first interaction with our wonderful clients.
She is in charge of sending out ASI audit results and certificates.
“Working at ASI has been quite an educational experience for me. I have learned what it takes to keep our food supply chain flowing good and healthy. Getting our food from farm to table is much more complex than I could have ever imagined. Not just the food itself, but also the packaging; which is something I never considered before.”
I am passionate about food safety and working at ASI has made me more aware of the products I purchase and where they come from. It has also made me more aware of my general food safety practices at home.
SUPPORT LOCAL: Cynthia would like to spotlight Cathy’s Kitchen in Ferguson, MO. “The food is fantastic! During all the civil unrest and damage to her business, and now the pandemic, she keeps pressing on and supporting her community.”
