Subject Matter Experts for Members

ADPI is committed to becoming the world’s premier authority on dairy ingredients. As such, we are pleased to introduce a network of seasoned dairy industry professionals serving as subject matter experts capable of addressing a wide range of topics as a key resource to ADPI Member organizations.

Here to Help

ADPI contracts with Center of Excellence subject matter experts on an annual basis based on member needs and the expert’s availability. Subject Matter Experts represent a wide spectrum of disciplines.

Consultations with subject matter experts are free of charge to ADPI members within established guidelines. Consultations are limited to designated time constraints per topic and member classification (Processors and Trading Tier 1 Members: 2 hours; All others: 1 hour).

How to Connect

Center of Excellence experts are ready and willing to address ADPI member questions or concerns. Simply identify the individual below that has the expertise you require, and make contact with that subject matter expert by phone or email. Please identify yourself as an ADPI member, and there is no cost for initial consultations. A member may then choose to further engage/employ the subject matter expert directly if more extensive assistance is required and the consultant is agreeable. ADPI staff members of the Center of Excellence are not available for external consulting work beyond their scope within ADPI.
