The Australian HACCP Conference provides the food industry with a means of rewarding and recognising notable workers and organisations that ensure high standards of food safety are continuously upheld.

This is done through the awards dinner, held on the second evening of the two-day conference, and the finalists have recently been announced for the 2017 awards.

The HACCP Conference has been an industry-leading event in food safety for 23 years, and the chance to register for this year’s event and celebrate the winner’s achievements is almost over.

Held on 30–31 August, the 24th conference will feature globally recognised speakers such as Dr John Spink, Director of the Food Fraud Initiative at Michigan State University (MSU), and Craig Reucassel from the TV series War on Waste.

Maintaining food safety, quality and a competitive price forms the core of the discussions and this is furthered by the event theme: ‘Creating trust and transparency in the global food industry’.

Attendees will have the chance to learn from a range of presentation topics and network with their peers before attending the awards dinner. Nominations have now closed and HACCP has announced the following finalists in the three categories:

This is intended for those who have made a notable contribution to food safety in Australia. The two finalists include:
