Jennie-O Turkey Store promotes Burgmeier to coordinator

WILLMAR — Jennie-O Turkey Store announces that Marilla Burgmeier has been promoted to the position of special projects coordinator for the research and development team at the corporate office at Jennie-O Turkey Store.

Burgmeier joined Jennie-O Turkey Store in August 2013 as a research specialist in the R&D food safety group. As the special projects coordinator, her focus will still be on food safety; however she will be balancing her time running studies in the plants and in live production, with designing testing protocols and evaluating test results.

Steve Leitch, food safety manager, said Burgmeier has been a great asset to the food safety team and plays an instrumental part in food safety research.
