Food Focus

"Food Focus connects people to people,
people to information, and problems to sector-specific solutions."
Food Focus is a digital marketing platform that is focused on food compliance from farm to fork. The goal has always been to help those in the food industry do the right things. From making food safely, keeping employees safe and building the right culture, to being responsible corporate citizens and minimising impact on our natural environment - it's about compliance and conformance to standards.

The Food Focus website, and the activities we are involved in all share a common objective - to help the food industry find the answers to their compliance issues by providing them with information from recognized experts and service providers.

Food Safety Culture

Assessing the food safety culture of your company is key to ensuring you have the best foundation possible to prevent recalls, illness or even death from your products so we have developed Food Safety Culture assessment adapted for the South African context. Our food safety culture assessment tool is intended to help food companies assess food safety management, including the management culture, application of pre-requisite programmes, hazard controls including
process activities. The tool can be used to identify aspects of good or poor food safety cultures and then be used as a framework or device to influence business culture.

Our multi-faceted approach allows you to assess, monitor and continually improve in a step-wise journey towards Food Safety Culture. Since culture is not something companies can change overnight; it takes time, continuous efforts and diligence to build.

Food Focus Events

Technical knowledge is a much-needed resource in the industry – what better way to use it than to make it accessible to the people who need it! If you are looking to host your own bespoke event for the food industry, we can assist with everything from MC services, design and hosting of a tailor-made online registration site, assistance with sourcing speakers, designing of invitations, programmes, venue arrangements all the way through to support services on the day.

Through sponsorship we can arrange topical industry events that position you face to face with the right audience, giving you the opportunity to network and give back.

We can also arrange media partnerships through any of our channels for your event. Whatever your objectives, let us see how we can help you.
