Challenges in the Catering Industry – new food safety event

On 18 September 2017, IFST’s Food Safety Group will be hosting its latest interactive meeting for IFST members. These events provide expert perspectives on hot topics followed by a lively discussion, where members are able to share knowledge and experiences.

Lisa Ackerley

The focus of this event is ‘Challenges in the Catering Industry; Translating Science into Practical Solutions’ with a presentation from Dr Lisa Ackerley, Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner with over 30 years’ experience.

Lisa is passionate about translating science into easily understood concepts and wants to provide practical solutions to every day food safety challenges – whether it is for the consumer or the food industry. If it is easy to understand, then there is some chance of behavioural change.

Lisa will focus on the challenges, myths and legends relating to:

  • Allergens
  • Burgers and risky foods
  • Food waste
  • Disinfection residues and chlorine
  • Antibiotic resistance
