The managing committee of the KIN food institute has appointed Axel Graefe (pictured) as new Manager and Head of Institute. Since 1965, the KIN food institute has been actively involved in the field of further education, research and development as well as quality assurance for the food industry. It maintains a highly customer-oriented co-operation between its different departments.

The main focus of KIN is on microbiology, chemistry and sensory analysis, market research, histology and packaging tests. Alongside these preventative and solution-oriented services, the KIN also offers consultation services.

Axel Graefe comments: “I’m very much looking forward to working for this renowned institute and to becoming a part of its huge network of expertise. With optimism and openness to innovation and considered expansion, it is my aim to lead the KIN to a successful future.”

For more than 35 years, Axel Graefe has held leading positions in the food supplier industry and most recently in the food industry itself. He has held management posts at companies including Haarmann & Reimer GmbH, Dragoco KG (both now Symrise AG), Firmenich and Frutarom. Whilst at Frutarom SA Switzerland and Döhler America, he lived and worked overseas for many years. As a qualified communication coach, Axel Graefe has also delivered advanced training to sales and marketing managing staff.
