Kiwa logo def Kiwa PAI, certification body for the feed, food and farming sectors has joined The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT) as a Supporting Company Member.

Part of the global Kiwa Group, Kiwa PAI undertakes the range of BRC Global Food Standard Audits from Food to Packaging, Storage & Distribution to Agents & Brokers. The company has particular expertise in the meat sector, working alongside retailers and key manufacturers.  Kiwa PAI is the sole auditing body for the Assured Meat Processing Scheme.

Kiwa PAI also has a strong presence in the feed sector, being the chosen certification body for the AIC assurance schemes. Kiwa PAI also offers extensive training courses across the feed, food and farming sectors.

Established by SOFHT in 2003, Supporting Company Membership was set up as part of a major drive to enlist the support of larger organisations within the food manufacturing, retailing and related industries.

The membership maximises the services provided to members, such as seminars and training events as well as helping to enhance SOFHT’s position as ‘the voice of food hygiene’. The role the Society does, and can play, in helping the development in food safety management across the industry has been acknowledged by these supporting companies.

Commenting on becoming a SOFHT Supporting Company Member, John Clague, General Manager at Kiwa PAI said:

“Without doubt SOFHT is the ‘must join’ organisation for anyone in the food industry as majority of manufacturers and retailers are members. This not only provides excellent networking opportunities and the chance to raise Kiwa PAI’s profile with key potential customers, but also gives us the opportunity to share best practice whether through training, breakfast seminars or events.

“Kiwa PAI has been a SOFHT member for several years but joining as an SCM will enable us to debate further with colleagues on current hot topics and become more involved in setting industry agendas in several areas.”
