IFST Food Safety events are interactive sessions for IFST members who might not be able to commit to a full day conference but still need to have an understanding of a subject in their role. They feature expert advice on a hot topic in the food industry followed by a discussion to share knowledge and experiences.
Speaker Dr Lisa Ackerley, is passionate to translate science into easily understood concepts, and wants to provide practical solutions to every day food safety challenges - whether it is for the consumer of the food industry. If it is easy to understand, then there is some chance of behavioural change.
