Many Taylorville residents are familiar with the local business Watson Foods, but few are familiar with what they do. Watson Foods manager Phillip Lee aimed to change that when he spoke to the Kiwanis Club on Tuesday, August 27th. Watson Foods is a third generation family owned business that began in 1939. Initially they produced flour for food manufacturers, but due to the rationing of many raw materials during WWII they were forced to diversify their operation. They began developing food stability products, which have drastically increased the amount of time our food stays fresh. They also produce enriching or fortifying products containing many combinatations of vitamins and minerals for use in the manufacturing of many different food products. Currently they are expanding into artificial flavoring technology at the Taylorville facility. For more information on Kiwanis go to www.taylorvillekiwanis.com. Pictured Left to Right: Joe Hauser August Program Chairman, Phillip Lee, and Amy Hagen.
