Weis Markets Wins Academy Award
St. Joseph’s University’s Academy of Food Marketing and the Food Marketing Educational Foundation will recognize Weis Markets with its annual Citation Award.
With a presentation scheduled for April 14 in Hershey, Pa., the timing of the citation is particularly notable as Weis celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2012 – the same year the Academy of Food Marketing celebrates its 50th anniversary. All proceeds from the dinner will benefit food marketing at St. Joseph’s.
“It is our great pleasure to recognize Weis Markets with the 44th annual citation award,” said Bob Higgins, executive director of the Academy of Food Marketing. “Not only is Weis Markets a leader in food retailing and distribution, the organization is also a model for corporate citizenship with its support of many philanthropic and charitable causes.”
Established in 1962, the Academy of Food Marketing provides scholarship, career counseling and placement support for students.
Founded in 1912, Weis Markets Inc. operates 161 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia.
