The Perishable Foods Council began the Intern Program in 2002, providing students from UC Davis the opportunity to learn more about the perishable foods industry. Soon after that, the program was expanded to San Jose State.  We are happy to announce after two years, our internship program at UC Davis is relaunching. If you are interested in becoming involved or your company is interested in providing a tour to the students, please contact our liasions Lacey Starkweather or Shannon Spicer.

Board member Bill Rudolph was instrumental in expanding the program and making it available to more students. In recognition for his years of service, the intern program has been named The Bill Rudolph Intern Program.

Hear from our interns...

Being a part of the PFC’s Internship Program during my last year at UC Davis gave clarity on what I wanted to do as a profession - I knew that I wanted to learn and grow within the food industry, and the program did a wonderful job introducing me to the multiple sectors that this industry has…Fast-forward to my last quarter at Davis, where I was fortunate enough to intern with CCD Innovation (now CCD Helmsman) within their ‘Trend Practice’, and after that, …working with Tony’s Fine Foods, where I am currently relishing my analytical skills to pursue a career in Financial Analysis. Neither of these…opportunities would have been possible without my internship experience with the PFC where I learned exclusive and valuable information about the food industry and was encouraged to form the lasting connections that I continue to foster to this day.” - Rudy Mendez
