2017 Visit: Wawona Frozen Foods

On July 28, ePathway Academy students visited Wawona Frozen Foods in Clovis. After learning a little bit about the company, the students were led on a tour of the different parts of the facility with Blake Smittcamp, the son of the company’s founder, Bill Smittcamp. Blake showed us the extreme measures taken to ensure the safety of our food supply, the different levels of processing intensity associated with different food products, how products are packaged for different sales channels, and much more. After the tour, the students had lunch with Blake and his sister Blair. They talked about the realities of family business, how management structures change and evolve, different problems faced by food processors, and much more. Thanks for Blake and Blair for a wonderful visit!
