Key industry appointments for hygiene experts
Christeyns Food Hygiene, manufacturer of professional hygiene products, is celebrating the appointments of two of its senior staff members, as they take on key roles in renowned industry associations.
Following the Society of Food Hygiene & Technology's (SOFHT) Annual General Meeting and the end of the current Chair's term, Peter Littleton (pictured left), technical director at Christeyns Food Hygiene UK, has been appointed as the new Chair, a post he will hold for the next two years.
SOFHT is a voluntary organisation that was set up in 1979 by a group of professionals to represent the interests and views of those involved in food hygiene across all disciplines. Peter will also continue in his role as training services director.
"I am honoured to take over the position of Chair of a society with which I have been involved for many years - especially at this time of challenge within our industry,” he says. “It is crucial that everyone stays connected and up to date with technological and operational developments with respect to the safe production of food and beverages and SOFHT has a huge role to play."
Also taking on a new Chair role is CFH national sales manager Chris Bayliss (pictured right). The Brewing, Food & Beverage Industry suppliers' association (BFBi), has appointed Chris as national Chairman, commencing this month and involving a two-year term.
Originally known as the Allied Brewery Traders Association, the BFBi was founded in 1907 and has over the years achieved many goals for its members in representing the food brewing and beverage industry at Governmental level.
"The BFBi brings together representatives from across the industry offering an essential network that provides information and support. It is a privilege to take up this role and play a bigger part in the behind-the-scenes work that provides huge benefits to all companies in the supply chain. This work is even more important under the difficult circumstances we currently face."
The Warrington, Cheshire-based company produces over 20 million litres of hygiene products per year and employs over 70 staff. Earlier in the summer it became the first company to be awarded the BSI kitemark for hand sanitiser, which set a new standard in hand hygiene.
