Being a SOFHT member will give Tayto Group access to up to date best practice information from across the whole food industry, which can only be used to enhance performance”, Nick Martin explains.

Catherine Watkinson, Chair of the Society of Food Hygiene and Technology said:

“One of my key objectives as Chair of the Society has been to increase membership particularly from technical managers in the food industry with 500 members set as the target. I am delighted to say that we have now reached that target and that Nick Martin will benefit from free lifetime membership and the benefits that SOFHT’s training and insights can bring to a food manufacturer like Tayto”.
