Entries Welcome For 2022 Significant Contribution To Food Safety Award


Nominations are open for the 2022 Significant
Contribution to Food Safety Award, sponsored by New Zealand
Food Safety.

As part of the New Zealand Institute of
Food Science and Technology (NZIFST) Awards, the Significant
Contribution to Food Safety Award recognises developments in
a process or operation – either by an organisation, team
or individual – to improve food safety in the food
chain.

New Zealand Food Safety welcomes nominees who
have:

  • made improvements in areas such as science
    and research, equipment or processing technology, product
    and packaging development, and industry best practice,
    or
  • built and maintained an effective food safety
    culture through staff engagement, leadership, or continual
    improvement.

“We are proud that New Zealand is
home to many forward-thinking, solutions-oriented food
safety champions, and we want to tell their stories through
the Significant Contribution to Food Safety Award,” says
New Zealand Food Safety’s Deputy Director General, Vincent
Arbuckle.

“The success of our food safety system
depends on the dedication and expertise of people throughout
New Zealand’s food industry and it’s important to
recognise the people and organisations that maintain and
grow New Zealand’s strong reputation as a provider of safe
and suitable food,” Mr Arbuckle says.

To nominate
individuals, teams, and/or organisations, visit Significant
Contribution to Food Safety Award. Self-nominations are
also accepted. Nominations close at 5pm on 3 June
2022.

The Award will be announced on 6 July at the 2022 NZIFST
Conference, in Rotorua.

The Significant
Contribution to Food Safety Award winner will receive a
trophy, and a 12-month NZIFST membership. Previous winners
