Amen, Lou

Lou Amen at Super A headquarters in Commerce, California.

Super A Foods founder Lou Amen is being inducted into the Food Industry Hall of Fame as his company celebrates 45 years as a strong Southern California independent.

Amen began his career in the industry as a teenager and today, at 87 years old, the chairman of Super A Foods is still at it, working from about 6 a.m. to noon before heading home to tend to his 50 rose bushes or spend time with his wife, Dorie, or maybe some of their massive extended family of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
