SOFHT Members’ Forum

1 Day Events
15 May

Keeping up-to-date with selected news, views and solutions on the latest food industry trends and hot topics 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 issues and legislation is critical.

To help our members stay alert to changes and trends, the Society holds regular forums with industry leading experts to guide them through the minefield of information, offering solutions and guidance to compliance. Each forum will be held at the SOFHT Office as a morning session.

This is a free benefit for all our members and we welcome your attendance. Help us lead the industry to compliance and consumer confidence.

This forum will discuss ‘The Impacts of BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8’

Led by John Figgins, Technical Specialist – BRC Global Standards
and Gina Kelly, Associate Director of Operations – NSF International

Following the launch of BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8, the Members’ Forum in May will provide an opportunity to share experiences of preparation for the new version and audit processes to date.

There are two areas of significant change within the standard:

  • Developing food safety culture
  • Environmental monitoring programmes

The session will provide an excellent opportunity for discussion and collaboration, so examples of your approach to the Issue 8 audit preparation would be welcome!
