Authenticate Is Takes up SOFHT Company Membership

Authenticate IS, the leading-edge food supply chain mapping provider has joined The Society of Food Hygiene & Technology (SOFHT) as a Supporting Company Member.

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

SCM gives businesses access to a range of services from SOFHT such as market updates in food safety, training, seminars and events as well as the opportunity to network with industry colleagues. In turn, membership of some high-profile companies such as Authenticate IS enhances SOFHT’s reputation as ‘the voice of food hygiene’.

Dawn Welham, technical director at Authenticate IS, said:

“It’s great to be joining forces with one of the leading bodies of food industry specialists; SOFHT is at the cutting edge of what’s happening in hygiene and technology and providing members with practical support to tackle issues.  As many food and technical managers also use our transparency platform, it’s a great fit for us and we hope to bring a lot to the table, particularly in terms of giving insight into the latest developments in technical compliance.”
