Kim Wall Earns Ethics in Business Award from Concordia University

May 14, 2008

Kim Wall, president of Baensch Food Products, the Milwaukee-based company which produces the popular brand Ma Baensch herring, was recognized by Concordia University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with its prestigious Ethical Business Leadership award. The Ethical Business Leadership award recognizes local business owners who demonstrate socially-responsible management practices. As the award’s top recipient, Wall was honored at a ceremony with two other award finalists on April 25, 2008. Wall was recognized for her work with the U.S. Department of Justice and its offender employment programs, as well as for overall community activism.

Wall, a 1979 graduate of Luther College, purchased Baensch Food Products from the Baensch family in 1999. Since taking ownership of the company, Wall has expanded its geographical distribution, introduced a marketing program, updated the product packaging and moved the product’s positioning in grocery stores from the dairy section to the meat and seafood area.
