SOFHT Extends a ‘High 5′ to Industry Technical Managers

The Society of Food Hygiene & Technology (SOFHT) wants more technical managers to join its ranks and has introduced an accessible membership package known as High 5 which entitles five technical people in any one organisation to join at a reduced rate.

Launched by Society Chair Catherine Watkinson at the SOFHT Annual Lecture and Luncheon last November, the new category is part of a series of new initiatives to encourage broader representation within the food manufacturing sector.

Catherine explains:
“As a Technical Manager myself I am truly passionate about establishing a good support network which allows access to resources that can deliver day-to-day solutions while creating an environment where like-minded people can share the same problems and successes.”

The package which is open to all technical team players – Hygiene Managers, QC Managers, Food Technologists, Lab Managers and Quality Auditors – includes free delegate places at events, discounts for Training Academy Courses & Breakfast Clubs, entitlement to use MSOFHT designation and ability to sit on the SOFHT Hygiene in Focus Working Group and the Technical Forum/Working Party Group.

The cost for this new membership grade is £295 for five members.
