Hi! I’m Rachel Zemser

Welcome to A La Carte Connections!  I started my food science career back in the 90’s when I decided to attend the University of Massachusetts and get my degree in this special and unique field. I have worked for both small and large food companies and have had my share of successes along the way. After 20 years of working for food companies- I ventured out on my own and started A La Carte Connections. I now team up with companies of all sizes to help them fast track their products to market.

Contact us to see how we can work together.
