Christeyns Food Hygiene, manufacturers 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 and Technology’s (SOFHT) Annual General Meeting and the end of the current Chair’s term, Peter Littleton, 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. Littleton will also continue in his role as Training Services Director.
Commenting on his appointment, Littleton said: “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. 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. The Brewing, Food & Beverage Industry suppliers’ association (BFBi), has appointed Bayliss 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,” commented Bayliss. “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.”
“As a family of experts, committed to supporting our industry and actively giving something back, we work tirelessly within societies and associations that seek to support, promote and nurture the development of the food dairy and beverage industry. This is no more evident than our unwavering support of the Society of Food Hygiene & Technology and the BFBI,” concluded Littleton.
