Robertet promoted Robert M. Weinstein, Ph. D. to president of Robertet Flavors USA. He will assume that role in addition to his current responsibilities as president, Robertet Ingredients and chief operating officer, Robertet USA.

In addition, he received numerous recognitions from various organizations and customers during his esteemed career. The most outstanding achievement is that he received both the IFRA NA Eric Bruell Distinguished Service Award in 2011 and the FEMA Dr. Richard L. Hall Distinguished Service Award in 2013.
