Events explore food safety culture

21 January 2018

The subject of food safety culture is to be tackled by a series of seminars, organised by totrain, to be held at three separate venues across the UK. 

While the majority of food industry manufacturers strive for a positive food safety culture, statistics published by the Food Standards Agency between 2014 – 2016 highlighted the fact that there are around 500 deaths a year caused by food borne illnesses.  With new and emerging threats to the food chain it is critical that food businesses ensure they develop a positive food safety culture.  

The events will explore many of the food safety topics that food and beverage manufacturers need to understand.  

The Food Safety Culture Seminar is being held in Darlington, Bury and Reading in January, February and March. Each event will feature the same speakers – including Professor John Holah, technical director at Holchem, Dr Derek Watson, senior lecturer, faculty of business, law & tourism, University of Sunderland, and Richard Friend, technical director at Fullwell Mill – together they will explore a range of important subjects. In addition, at both Bury and Reading, Dr Karen Hetherington from Fulwell Mill will also present.  

Topics will include ‘What is food safety culture?’, ‘Tools and techniques to evaluate and improve food safety culture within food manufacturing’ and a case study conducted with Fullwell Mill discussing how the company has measured and improved its food safety culture.

The events will be held between 8.30am and 1.30pm and lunch and refreshments are included. The details of the events are:  
Bury – Thursday, February 1st 2018, Gateway House, Pilsworth Road, Bury.
Darlington – Tuesday February 27th 2018 at Blackwell Grange, Darlington
Reading – Tuesday, March 27th 2018, Best Western Reading, Calcot Hotel.
