During the FEMA Annual Leadership Conference, which took place in Charleston (SC) from April 29 to May 1, Paul Graham was appointed FEMA President. Paul brings vast experience of more than 35 years in the industry and has been an honoured member of FEMA for more than 10 years. He officially assumed his role on May 1, 2024, following his recognition by the association members and former President Laurette Rondenet.   

FEMA, the Flavour and Extract Manufacturers Association of the United States, founded in 1909, is the preeminent national association of the U.S. flavour industry, dedicated to ensuring the availability of safe flavouring substances.  

As President, Paul excitedly highlights, “I am deeply committed to leading FEMA through a period of evolution by creating and implementing a comprehensive strategic five-year plan. This will enhance collaboration among FEMA Committee Chairs, members, and stakeholders, while working together with IOFI (International Organisation of the Flavour Industry).”  

Another central topic to Paul Graham’s agenda is advancing FEMA’s commitment to ensuring the safe and responsible use of flavourings through FEMA GRAS while fostering industry innovation. He is dedicated to improving outreach and membership engagement as well as making FEMA more accessible, strengthening programs like the FIL (Flavour Ingredient Library) and FEMA FLI (Future Leaders Initiative).
