Selected news, views and solutions on the latest UK & EU legislation
Keeping up-to-date with UK & EU legislation is paramount for those working in the food industry, whether you are a leading retailer, advisory consultant or Technical Manager. The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology recognises that staying in touch with rapidly changing requirements and maintaining an awareness of current legislation is critical.
To help our members stay alert to changes, the Society offer a legislation forum with industry leading experts to enable them to work through the minefield of information, offering solutions and guiding them to compliance. Each forum will be held at the SOFHT Training Room as a morning session.
This is a free benefit to all our members and we welcome your attendance. Help us lead the industry to compliance and consumer confidence.
Wednesday 20th July 2016
Registration 9am. Forum 9.30am – 12.30pm
At: The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology, Middleton
This forum will discuss ‘Modern Slavery Act 2015’
led by Adrian Manion from NSF International
The Modern Slavery Act was introduced primarily to address the issue of slavery and human trafficking offences. Following campaigning, the inclusion of supply chain and its potential role in slavery and human trafficking was added as an amendment to the bill.
The forum will discuss:
- The concerns initially raised by the Home Office that including supply chain would add an “additional burden” on business,
- How the requirements are to be implemented.
- The consequences of doing nothing.
