Cedar Rapids, Iowa (June 5, 2019) — Diamond V welcomes Rodrigo Carranza as Director of Market Access – Head of Farm Certifications Unit, part of the company’s Market Access team.

“I’m excited to have Rodrigo join us,” said Dr. Darin Henry, Global Director of Ruminant Business Strategy & Food Safety for Diamond V. “Earlier this year, we announced the acquisition of Agri-Ed, Inc, which operates the Dairy Quality Center and certifies dairy, beef, and veal herds across the U.S. for packers, processors, and retailers under the Verified Premium Plus Audit Program.

“Rodrigo has come on board to lead this business, expand the program footprint, and enhance what we have to offer producers, retailers, and ultimately consumers. As leaders in the food industry, we’re meeting growing consumer demand for animal proteins raised in the most humane and sustainable way with the highest stewardship standards in the industry. Rodrigo brings a passion for helping farmers fulfill the promise of nourishing the world with a safe, sustainable, and healthy food supply, I’m excited to see how he will leverage his role to help that happen.”
