The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT) is an independent consortium of food industry specialists set up to keep members advised of the current hygiene and technology issues through providing technical support, training and topical information as well as a vital forum for networking and sharing best practice across the entire food chain.


SOFHT, in partnership with Fera Science, will be hosting an Innovation Day that will bring together food industry suppliers and services with innovative solutions that will be of interest to food manufacturers, retailers and other service providers.


The conference programme will provide information on innovation in cleaning and disinfection, food, microbiology, pest control, technology and training, in a mix of key presentations and breakout sessions enabling delegates to select those areas of special interest to their business needs.
