Mr. Keromnes was a great friend and human being, who, during his professional lifetime accumulated a remarkable amount of experience in meat processing. Widely recognized for his contributions for the industry, Bernard developed many constructs related to meat processing automatization that were patented. Mr. Keromnes was an important agent in the process of adapting and modernizing meat processing plants during Smithfield Food’s expansion in Romania, Poland and Spain. Engineer Keromnes was and advisor and counselor during Granjas Carroll de México’s pork meat processing plant planning and construction.
