Philip Gross: Advice for plant manager: Eat beef

January 15, 2014 

It seems to some that Foster Farms has a roach problem at one of its plants. I see it as a plant manager problem. After the plant’s recent bout with salmonella, it seems as if the plant manager should be on the floor every day making sure there are no more bacteria, dirt or roaches running about. If the manager can’t find the time and energy to see that the plant under his care is clean and efficient, maybe he or she should be let go. Or better yet, sent down on the processing line to work and see just what happens.

But then I guess a cushy office away from the product, the employees and the problems is this manager’s managerial style. Good on you, sir. And I advise you to eat more beef.
