Join Highfield's Breakfast Briefing in Doncaster on Tuesday 19 November for a morning of insightful presentations from expert speakers in food safety, and witness one of the stickiest debates of 2019: to scrape or not to scrape?

Peter Littleton is Technical Director at Christeyns Food Hygiene UK, a leading supplier of speciality chemicals to meet the needs of the dairy, food, brewing and beverage industries.

Peter’s presentation on ‘The risks of a failed cleaning and disinfection regime’ will discuss the consequences of failure in a cleaning and disinfection regime in a food, dairy or beverage operation. Through using case studies we will review the root cause and most appropriate remedial and preventative actions as well as considering hygiene efficacy determination.

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 a 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.

In his presentation ‘Moulds in Foods: Issues and Prevention’, Peter will discuss mainstream moulds and the foods in which they grow, the damage moulds can do to our food and how this can be controlled.

This sticky topic spread its way across social media earlier in the year when Theresa May reportedly told cabinet ministers that she scrapes off the mouldy layer of jam rather than throwing away a whole jar. So, what’s the truth about mould? Is it safe just to scrape it off? Highfield’s Breakfast Briefing will get to the bottom of it.
