As part of its commitment to encouraging young people into the food industry, The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT) has completely cut all student membership fees.
SOFHT membership allows students to keep up to date with many opportunities to enhance their learning and improve job prospects. These include technical developments in the food industry with the SOFHT Focus magazine, Hygiene in Focus e-leaflets and Food Safety Bites (monthly technical bulletins). There is also a discounted attendance at all SOFHT events such as Breakfast Clubs and Training Events. Membership of SOFHT also allows students to ‘network’ with some of the bigger names in food – all potential future employees!
Catherine Watkinson, Chair at SOFHT said:
“Historically the food industry has struggled to attract school leavers and graduates and SOFHT wants to actively support young people in progressing in this industry. Cutting the student membership fees will help to drive new recruits and is part of a number of initiatives we have planned for the next year to promote the food industry to young people.”
