Breakfast Briefing – Allergen Awareness

Our chosen speakers are experts in their field with a wealth of knowledge.

Euan will deliver a presentation on the ‘A history of food poisoning and food allergens’.

Peter Wareing is an independent expert witness for civil and criminal courts, and a food safety consultant in HACCP, risk assessment, theoretical validations and microbiological troubleshooting, with particular focus on mycological issues.  

His specialist product areas are in the microbiology of soft drinks, sauces and dressings, bakery products and dried foods. As a member of the Society for Applied Microbiology and a Fellow of the Institute of Food Science and Technology, Peter has over 30 years’ experience working in food and agricultural research and development. His work has taken him as far as Africa, Asia and South America.
