by Lynn Moyers on February 6, 2014

Former owner and CEO of New Season Foods, Inc, Mark Frandsen, tells his story of how a fifty year old Oregon frozen berry processor was transformed into an innovative and collaborative producer of soup ingredients for export to Japan. He will share how the company’s relationship with the Japanese food industry leader, Ajinomoto, began in 1985 and how it ultimately led to the acquisition of New Season Foods by Ajinomoto in 2007.

The Center for Japanese Studies at Portland State presents another installment in their successful Oregon Success Stories in Doing Business with Japan series, “How Japanese Corn Soup Transformed an Oregon Food Processor” by Mark Frandsen. Mark will tell an inspiring Oregon success story. We hope you come to hear him.
