WASHINGTON — The American Bakers Association will work together with the Snack Food Association to create the 2010 A.B.A./S.F.A. Salary and Benefits Survey. It will feature data collected from all segments of the baking and snack foods industries, including bread and rolls, potato and tortilla chips, cakes and pies, cookies and crackers, sweet goods, and tortillas. The survey also will include information on corporate, division and plant management positions with salary broken down by both region and plant size.

Compdata Surveys, a national compensation survey firm, will conduct the survey, which will be available for purchase by early summer.

“The American Bakers Association is thrilled to work with the Snack Food Association on the 2010 Salary and Benefits Survey,” said Robb MacKie, president and chief executive officer of the A.B.A., Washington. “Working together with S.F.A. will result in a more robust and complete analysis of current salary and compensation trends in both the baking and snack foods industries.”

Jim McCarthy, president and c.e.o. of the S.F.A., Arlington, Va., said, “S.F.A. appreciates the opportunity to join A.B.A. in producing this very worthwhile survey. This survey will help our member companies better understand compensation levels in the snack and bakery industries.”
