IFST Eastern Branch & UK:IE EHEDG Conference: Hygienic design in food processing environments

Eastern Branch of IFST in conjunction with the UK & Ireland regional section of the European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG) will be hosting a one-day Hygienic design in food processing environments conference at the National Centre for Food Manufacturing based near Holbeach, Lincolnshire on 31 October 2019.

The conference will provide an excellent opportunity for delegates to mingle with EHEDG experts, better understand the benefits of hygienic design, gain access to EHEDG guidance and training and discover the hygienic design innovations of the future.

It will also provide delegates with the opportunity to find out more about IFST and the benefits that it has to offer as the UK’s leading professional body supporting the food industry. Both organisations share the same aims of advancing food science and technology, based on impartial science and knowledge sharing, and personal development and recognition.
