Núñez has been with Key for 15 years, working at the company’s world headquarters in Walla Walla, WA.

Our complete range of belt- and chute-fed sorters, along with conveying and other processing technologies, are ideal for fresh and processed fruits and vegetables as well as nuts, snacks, and other foods for both domestic consumption and export,” said Núñez. “I look forward to working with Mexican food processors to help them raise the quality of their products and improve their production efficiencies.”
