It is such a privilege to be able to live out my passion for all aspects of public health, with the support of my good friends and amazing business partners.  Having started my journey in public health, I learned that a compliance and enforcement-driven approach to food safety can never be effective without the changing of mindsets and embedding a food safety culture in organizations.  One of the basic building blocks driving this change is effective training, aligned to all levels within the company, ensuring the knowledge develops into a food safety culture driven by passion and not merely regulatory compliance. As the industry evolves, so does our business.

It has been a wonderful experience developing Food Risk Forum and our various platforms to educate and support the food industry. Between Adele, Linda and myself, we bring a diverse mix of expertise, innovation, passion and skill to the work we do. We are brimming with so many ideas and plans to enhance the ways in which we can assist the industry with food compliance, but one of things that sets us apart is our agility and responsiveness – as a small, hands-on organisation we can respond almost instantly to industry news, trends, or crises. It’s a privilege to support the local food industry - it has never been as challenging (or rewarding) as it is right now.

I am so blessed to be able to contribute in a small way to the South African Food industry. I love the fact that we can chat to people daily and help to give them answers to their food compliance questions and point them in the right direction. Being involved with Food Focus and our other platforms has allowed us to work with some many people that we would otherwise never have come to know, and we have been enriched by this.  Working with my best friends is also such a privilege. Food Risk Forum has so much more to offer, and you can expect to hear more from us about food safety culture, free resources, exclusive content for members only to name just a few.
