The Society takes the health, safety and well-being of any visitors to our Long Barn head-quarters very seriously and maintains the availability of suitable hand-care products such as soap and disinfectant. We are also ensuring that we are in step with current UK government and health service advice with regard to the containment and spread of Covid-19 (novel Coronavirus). We would respectfully request that should you or an immediate contact become aware that you may have contacted Covid-19 you advise us so appropriate action may be discussed.

SOFHT puts on a number events throughout the year to keep members abreast of the hot topics and breaking issues in the fast-changing food industry. These range from breakfast briefings to training courses delivered by the newly launched SOFHT Training Academy to the SOFHT Annual Lunch and Awards.
