Ready Pac Foods to provide job opportunities for Syrian refugees

Ready Pac Foods opened its employment doors for refugees relocating to the United States from the current crisis in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. The fresh foods company has committed to train and hire refugees from among the 10,000 Syrian refugees expected from the recent White House announcement.

As part of the training, Ready Pac Foods will provide practical resources and expertise to a number of positions within its manufacturing business. Additionally, Ready Pac Foods will work to create long-term jobs for those in need.

“We feel the responsibility to help others in need. With the influx of refugees coming to the United States, we want to help them build a future in their new home,” said Tony Sarsam, CEO of Ready Pac Foods. “Ready Pac Foods is committed to opening its doors and providing a place to grow and prosper.”
