Exemplar Global to Help HACCP Awards Recognize Food Safety Professionals

The HACCP Awards for 2015 are fast approaching, with Exemplar Global again supporting the program.

The HACCP Awards for 2015 are fast approaching, with Exemplar Global again supporting the program. The HACCP Award program recognizes professionals who are making positive contributions to the food safety industry.

Exemplar Global has been a strong supporter of the awards program for many years, including providing funding and sponsorship, with CEO and President Peter Holtmann having a long-standing presence on the judging panel.

Hosted by SAI Global, the HACCP Awards were established in 2003 as a way of recognizing people in the agri-food chain who work tirelessly in the interests of food safety. It’s the only award program in Australia that recognizes food safety excellence.

“There are many other company awards or individual awards, but people working in food safety or quality assurance departments often get missed,” said Michelle Tolhurst, SAI Global marketing executive. “It’s vital to recognize that food safety is critical for the entire business, and HACCP programs need to start at the top-down. Without the rigorous food safety management systems and the procedures followed daily by each person on the production line, businesses would not succeed.”

Tolhurst has been involved with the HACCP Awards program for 10 years, and said she enjoys reading all of the applications and seeing the dedication of the industry to protect our food supply. However, she believes that a lot of the work is taken for granted.

“Consumers buy food with the expectation that it will be safe and fit for consumption,” she said. “They don’t realize how much effort goes into ensuring safety across every step of the supply chain. Therefore, the HACCP Awards are a valuable tool and one that should be recognized and celebrated right across the food industry.”

Due to changes in format and timing, this year SAI Global will be offering two awards: the Ross Peters Award for Excellence in Food Safety, and the Food Safety Training Scholarship Award to recognize up-and-coming talent.

“The calibre of entries [this year] was very high, with many worthy candidates,” Tolhurst said. “Those who stood out the most submitted a complete application, including all suggested supporting documents.”

The awards would not be possible without the support of the judging panel, and in order to keep the program industry-based and fair, judges are selected to represent all sectors of the industry. Alongside long-standing judge Peter Holtmann, this year’s judging panel includes Debbie Peters, the former owner of Advancing Food Safety; Clare Hamilton Bate from Freshcare; Fiona Fleming from the Australian Food and Grocery Council; and Ian Jenson from Meat and Livestock Australia.

The HACCP Awards for 2015 will be presented on November 18 as part of the HACCP conference, which runs November 17–18 at the Mercure Sydney. For more information about the conference and HACCP Awards, visit australianhaccpconference.com.au.
