Welcome to this Special Edition of the SOFHT Focus in which we celebrate the SOFHT Annual Lecture and Lunch, held this year at The Brewery in London.

We hope you had a fantastic day, the feedback has again been really positive regarding the lecture and the networking opportunities. We will continue to listen to your feedback to keep the day the popular and ‘must attend’ event that it is.

I hope you enjoyed this year’s lecture. Kate Quilton provided a very interesting insight into the world of TV – particularly the Food Unwrapped series. The interview with Rick certainly covered a broad array of topics – as did the audience questions, which were most entertaining.

Thank you to the sponsors of this year’s event: Pal International, Kiwa Agri Food and Lloyds Register.

Congratulations to the Award Winners and, once again, to the sponsors and our judges. The standards were really high this year, which gave the judges a challenging task.

The event also raised £7,413 for our nominated charity, Cystic Fibrosis Care. Thank you all for supporting this very worthwhile cause.

The Society remains grateful for the ongoing support from our members and industry, which continues to enable us to deliver a varied programme of events and training. Please do keep on giving feedback and contribute to the way your Society is run by providing articles and photos for Focus or suggestions for future events.

I wish you all the very best for the Festive Season, and a Happy New Year, which will inevitably be an exciting one in the food world. We look forward to seeing you at a future event. We are taking pre-bookings for the next Annual Lecture and Lunch, so do book early
