The HACCP Awards are presented by Advancing Food Safety, SAI Global at the Australian HACCP Conference.
2013 marked the 20th Conference, and the Awards this year included the Inaugural Ross Peters Award Memorial Award. Ross was a strong and passionate advocate for food safety in our industry and was an auditor and business owner as well as being a well known and popular personality. He passed away recently and in recognition of his outstanding contribution to food safety, and especially HACCP, in Australia, a special award has been set up to be presented at the Conference.
The Awards are aimed at recognising the contribution that both individuals and organisations have made to food safety both in Australia and New Zealand.
Damian James, General Manager – Assurance Services Australia – Advancing Food Safety, SAI Global said; “The HACCP Awards set Australasia’s food industry professional standards.
