Following the announcement that Groceries Code Adjudicator, Christine Tacon, will be the keynote speaker at Appetite for Engineering 2013, Food Processing magazine has revealed the names of two more top level speakers.

Discussing the skills issue at A4E will be Justine Fosh, Chief Executive at the National Skills Academy for Food and Drink and Professor Val Braybrooks MBE, Dean and Associate Professor of Food Manufacturing, Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Animal Sciences, The University of Lincoln. 

Justine has held senior marketing and commercial roles in a number of food and drink businesses including Grolsch, Sara Lee, McCains and Uniq Foods before joining learndirect and then Improve, heading up the development of the National Skills Academy for Food and Drink.

Justine is a graduate of Strathclyde University in marketing and industrial relations and, as Chair of the National Skills Academy network, is responsible for 19 Academies operating in different industry sectors throughout England.

Among the topics open for debate will be: The Graduate Excellence project, the UK’s first Undergraduate programme in Food engineering; Food Engineering Apprenticeships; and modernising and revolutionising the delivery of engineering apprenticeships.

Prof Val Braybrooks MBE will explain how her work encourages young people to consider food manufacturing as a career path. A graduate in Food Science, Val holds an MBA and Associate Professor status in Food Manufacturing. 

She is responsible for overseeing the University’s provision for the agricultural, land based and food manufacturing sectors from the faculty’s two campuses: Holbeach, the National Centre of Food Manufacturing in South Lincolnshire, and the 460 ha Riseholme Park Estates on the outskirts of Lincoln. The faculty supports approximately 600 full time and some 2500 part time learners on a range of further and higher Education provision.

Food Processing’s Editor, Chris Shaw, said: “By focusing on three primary streams: Integrity; Efficiency; and Reponsibility, we believe that A4E will provide answers to a range of problems that are littered throughout the supply chain. How can consumer trust in the food chain be restored in the wake of the horsemeat scandal? How can food manufacturing be promoted more effectively to graduates? How can the pressures of legislation and regulations help drive innovation and increase efficiency? 

“With our top level speakers sharing their expertise, delegates will be provided with an amazing opportunity to debate the best possible solutions and how they can be integrated.”
