As we go out into the food industry, one significant trait that continues to shine through is the passion we all have for our industry and in food safety. With this much enthusiasm, it is particularly challenging not to bring work home with you at the end of the day. However, when we do, it starts rubbing off on our family, inspiring even the youngest members to be just as excited about food safety as we are.
A perfect example of this comes from one of our very own. Anantharama Rishi, or known simply as “Rishi” to his friends, is a Senior Field Applications Specialist with Roka Bioscience and has been providing our customers with outstanding applications and workflow support for the past 4 years. Recently, his daughter, Saivarshini, an 8th grader, was inspired so much by her dad that she actually wrote this limerick about the Atlas System:
