The National Turkey Federation announced the addition of Keith M. Williams as vice president of Communications and Marketing.
Williams brings 25 years of experience working with reporters to benefit the public with an understanding of agriculture and food safety. Originally from Lubbock, Texas, Williams has served as press secretary at USDA and at House and Senate agriculture committees in Congress, after a previous career as a reporter in the West Texas region.
“Keith is the ideal person to help enhance our comprehensive focus on the shared interests of consumers, producers and processors,” says NTF president Joel Brandenberger. “NTF members welcome the public’s expectation for accurate information about the food they feed their families, and Keith will do a great job of providing the public that information.”
“The turkey industry has the diversity of products available today with incredible nutritional value supplied by producer and processor dedication to safe, science-based production and processing,” Williams says. “I look forward to increasing the public’s informed understanding of what it takes to get turkey to their table.”
The National Turkey Federation is the national advocate raising awareness for its members' products, while strengthening their ability to profitably and safely deliver wholesome, high-quality, and nutritious food to consumers worldwide.
