Black Pearl Award

In 1993, Wilbur Feagan, F&H, and IAFP created the Black Pearl Award to recognize companies for their commitment to corporate excellence in food safety and quality. Throughout history, black pearls have been sought after from Oceania to the Orient by European lords and Asian emperors alike – It’s rarity a sign of determination, its luster a sign of quality, and its acquisition a sign of excellence. This is why it was chosen as the symbol for our industry’s most coveted award. Each year, the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) awards the Black Pearl to a select company for its outstanding achievements and advancements. Thanks to our founder, Wilbur Feagan, F&H is the proud sponsor of this prestigious award.
