Welcome to this special edition to SOFHT Focus in which we celebrate the SOFHT Annual Lecture and Luncheon which was held this year at the Sheraton Grand in Park Lane, London.

SOFHT are pleased by the extremely positive feedback that the event has received, both in terms of the lecture, entertainment and opportunity for networking.

Stefan Gates provided a very entertaining and lively lecture, with audience participation.

In his own words: ‘I have the best job in the world: I’m a food adventurer. I know that sounds a bit odd, but there’s really no other way of explaining it. I spend my life working to inspire fascination with food and I do it by cooking, exploring and occasionally blowing stuff up’. At some times a little uncomfortable, as food science and the digestive system merged, the underlying message was how to make the food industry appeal to the next generation.

As always, the impressive awards finalist lists and winners serve to demonstrate the reach and appeal of our Society and I congratulate all who were successful on the day.

A note of thanks to our sponsors of this year’s event and to those who have already agreed to sponsor next year or who have pre-booked their 2018 tables at The Brewery in London.

The Society are very grateful for the continued support that the industry gives, allowing the continued development of events and training. The Society is run by a voluntary Council, focused on supporting the food industry. Please do continue to send the SOFHT team any photos, articles or news for future editions of SOFHT Focus and the Council hope to see you at some of our future events.

I wish you all the best for the Festive Season and New Year.

Fiona Kibby,
Editor SOFHT Focus
