Blog | 4 May 2018

Our Technical Director, Dr John Holah, presented at the recent International Association for Food Protection European Symposium on Food Safety in Stockholm, Sweden.

John is a world expert on allergen controls and gave a 30-minute talk on Allergen Removal Validation, Monitoring and Verification which formed part of a session ‘Allergen Control – From Problem to Solution’.  Other speakers included Lynne Regent from the Anaphylaxis Campaign and Deb Smith from Vikan. The European Symposium has been shaping the future of food safety by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas with colleagues from across Europe working in industry, government and academia.

Commenting on the event, John said: The IAFP European Symposium generated lots of insightful analysis and solutions regarding food safety and in particular allergen control. The sharing of such knowledge is key to the successful management of allergens and ensuring the correct controls are in place throughout the food processing industry.
