Kersia’s Dr John Holah To take Part In Campden BRI Seminar

Blog | 26 March 2021

Kersia's Dr John Holah, is taking part in a forthcoming Campden BRI and International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Europe seminar titled ‘Environmental Monitoring Plans’.

The online event is taking place on Wednesday 12th May and the seminar will provide an in-depth look into environmental monitoring with experts in the field. It will cover both dried food production and chilled food production systems and will consider the important safety issue of allergens and allergen monitoring.

With COVID-19 still a risk factor, virologist Martin D’Agostino will take attendees through environmental monitoring to detect SARS-Cov-2. This key seminar will be held together with experts that have been producing a new guideline for the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Europe on environmental monitoring in dry manufacturing and will feature some of the authors.

John’s presentation will consider why environmental monitoring and verification is required based on the 5-Point Pathogen Control Model. In this model, sources of pathogens, and the vectors on which they can cross-contaminate the environment and food products, are identified in the (typically) high hygiene food manufacturing areas (buildings, services, equipment, utensils, and operatives etc.).
