Softh Focus Issue 89. April 2019Welcome to the Spring SOFHT Focus. This has certainly been an interesting start to the year for the food industry with the ongoing uncertainty over Brexit presenting even more challenges than anticipated.

We had hoped to be in a more informed position to comment on Brexit in this edition. However, my thanks to Ian Thomas who has provided an informative article for us, having been given the difficult challenge of providing a legislative update at this uncertain time and without the help of a crystal ball.

This edition is crammed with very relevant and stimulating articles from Roy Betts, Rick Pendrous, Peter Littleton and Kaarin Goodburn. As ever, feedback and ideas/future articles are always welcome

On the 19th June we are holding the SOFHT AGM at the SOFHT offices and members are welcome to join us for this.

We had a brief glimpse of Summer at the beginning of March and that has put us in the mood for planning our 3rd Summer Lecture Event on the 4th July, for which we are returning to lovely venue of Coombe Abbey. There is a flyer on page 31, so please pop the date into your diary and make a booking.

I wish you all a Happy Easter filled with sunshine and, of course, lots of chocolate.

Dianne Waite,
Editor SOFHT Focus
