Union City man to mark 50 years at Kraft
Submitted By Joyce Hodel
Cipriano Pina (ÒCipÓ) celebrated 50 years of work at the Kraft San Leandro beverages plant on Oct. 23. The San Leandro plant roasts and packages Maxwell House, Gevalia, and Yuban coffee, and also produces Tang, Kool-Aid, and Country Time powdered soft drinks.
Cip has worked in a variety of departments and positions at the manufacturing facility during his half-century at the site, but for about the past 14 or so years, he has been roasting coffee.
To mark this achievement, Kraft will be featuring Cip as a ÒMaster RoasterÓ on cans of their Maxwell House and Yuban coffees beginning this December Ð to honor his milestone anniversary.
