Congratulations to the winners of our Early-Career Food Safety Specialists 2022 Bursary!

Thank you to everyone who entered, we received many applications from food safety professionals based around the world.

Each entrant told us about their achievements and contributions in the area of food safety, especially over the last year when the public has been even more reliant on safe food to maintain their health, as part of their home-based COVID-19 situation. 

In addition, they explained the positive impact that they provided in their workplace by defining the problem, how it was identified, what their role was in developing a solution or improvement to a situation and what the outcome was for them, their business and their customers.

The winners of this competition have been awarded a year’s complimentary Associate Membership with IFST and a place at our Spring Conference (SC22) which takes place online from 4 - 6 May. In addition, they will be invited to a presentation and careers mentoring session with the Food Safety Leaders of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
