Welcome to the Spring Edition of the SOFHT Focus.

I think it’s fair to say that none of us could have anticipated this horrendous start to 2020, we knew that Brexit and Climate change could present us with some challenges but Covid-19 is something else.

Business planning and budgeting has been thrown up in the air and our thoughts go out to all those who have suffered personally and/or professionally as a result. The UK Food Industry is made up of a wealth of experts who are all working hard together to keep the food supply chain running and support key workers. There have been many examples of collaborative working and sharing of knowledge happening. Fiona Kibby explains in her Chair’s update how we at SOFHT are looking to support our members and industry.

It has been a busy year so far in the SOFHT office, unfortunately we have needed to refocus and cancel/ postpone some of the fantastic events we had planned , including the Summer Lecture.

Finally, thank you to all the contributors of articles for this edition, and to Rick Pendrous for his valued support, we hope you enjoy reading. We do not plan to publish an Autumn edition, we will deliver the Focus online instead. As ever we welcome your feedback .

I wish you and your families and businesses all the best in these difficult times.

Dianne Waite,
Editor SOFHT Focus
