Leonard Zuckerman, December 14, 2006.

It is with deep sadness that we report on the passing of Leonard Zuckerman. Zuckerman was a chemical engineer and pioneer in the development of soluble coffee. He was a founding partner of Coffee Instants, Inc., in 1954, which became the largest private label manufacturer of instant coffee in North America. Zuckerman has also been long involved in the early development of the Brazilian soluble industry, he founded FDC Sales, Inc., in 1973, the predecessor to L.M. Zuckerman & Co., Inc., a leader in the import and supply of soluble coffee. He was a director of the NCA board from 1982-1984 and 1988 and was active on many coffee association committees. Len devoted his entire career to the trade.

"Leonard Zuckerman was a major presence at the NCA and a leader who made significant contributions to the organization and to the U.S. coffee industry, said Robert Nelson, NCA president and c.e.o. "The expertise and dedication he devoted to the NCA live on in the work of the current board turning opportunity into success at a time of dynamic change."
