DouxMatok announces appointments

DouxMatok, a global food-tech company offering sugar-based sugar-reduction solutions, recently announced the appointment of IFT members Lorraine Niba as vice president of sales, North America, and Jim Schulok as vice president of applications.

Niba brings over a decade of experience in scaling new, specialty ingredients. Her most recent role was at Ingredion, where she led business strategy and product portfolio for the company’s Global Nutrition Platform and headed a specialty sales development team focused on commercialization of new innovation products. Niba holds a PhD in food science from the University of Maryland and an MBA in marketing and finance from the La Salle University School of Business, Philadelphia.

Schulok brings nearly 25 years of executive leadership experience in product development and R&D with Mondelēz and Kraft Foods, across a variety of categories and technologies, including chocolate, beverages, coffee, and snacking and biscuits. He has also led multiple projects with brands such as Oreo, Cadbury, Ritz, belVita, Milka, and Capri Sun. Schulok holds a BS in food science from Penn State University and an MS in food science from Rutgers University.

The two new leaders have joined DouxMatok as it readies to introduce Incredo Sugar, a sugar-reduction solution based on real cane sugar. “I’m thrilled to join the DouxMatok team at such a pivotal moment for the company as it expands its footprint into a priority market here in the United States,” Schulok stated in a press release.
