Nominations are open for the 2022 Significant Contribution to Food Safety Award, sponsored by New Zealand Food Safety.

As part of the New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology (NZIFST) Awards, the Significant Contribution to Food Safety Award recognises developments in a process or operation – either by an organisation, team or individual – to improve food safety in the food chain.

New Zealand Food Safety welcomes nominees who have:

  • made improvements in areas such as science and research, equipment or processing technology, product and packaging development, and industry best practice, or
  • built and maintained an effective food safety culture through staff engagement, leadership, or continual improvement.

To nominate individuals, teams, and/or organisations, visit Significant Contribution to Food Safety Award. Self-nominations are also accepted. Nominations close at 5pm on 3 June 2022.

The Award will be announced on 6 July at the 2022 NZIFST Conference, in Rotorua.

The Significant Contribution to Food Safety Award winner will receive a trophy, and a 12-month NZIFST membership. Previous winners of the Award are Denver McGregor (2021), Aaron Dodunski (2020), Rosie Waller (2019), Professor Nigel French (2018) and Dr Lesley Rhodes (2017).
