Sugars Technologist at the confectionery plant, Strauss Group
Arie Letzter (64), born in Tel Aviv, joined Strauss Group more than 20 years ago as Sugars Technologist of Elite Confectionery at the confectionery plant in Nazareth. 15 years ago, the chewing gum technology was transferred from Ramat Gan to Nazareth, and gum development became an integral part of his activity on top of other products. Arie always reminds people how fortunate he is to be working as a technologist in the most challenging and enjoyable category of all. Recently, Arie was called to duty with training and learning sessions, and since then has been building a "Confectionery Academy" in the three fields of technology at the plant, which will serve as a cornerstone for training various production line operators and technologists. Arie lives in Ramat Yishai with his wife, and has four children and four grandchildren.
