The Allergen Bureau is delighted to be collaborating with both the New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology (NZIFST) and the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) to offer Allergen Bureau Awards for best practice food allergen management – to be presented at each of the NZIFST Conference 2018 (3-5 July, Hamilton) and the AIFST Convention 2018 (11-12 September, Melbourne).
These awards recognise excellence in food allergen management in New Zealand and Australia.
In accordance with the Allergen Bureau Mission, the Selection Committee will decide the award recipient based on their contribution to a consistent, science-based approach to food allergen risk assessment, management and communication that: guides industry best practice; and assists allergen sensitive consumers to make informed choices based on label information.
The Allergen Bureau encourages self-nomination from anyone making a significant contribution to allergen management best practice.
More details of award criteria and the nomination process will be made available through the NZIFST website, the AIFST website and via the Allergen Bureau monthly eNews.
