We recently held our summer Corporate Conference at the Auchentoshan Distillery, Glasgow. We had approximately 40 delegates from a wide range of organisations including food manufactueres, food retailers, caterers and pharmaceutical companies.
The event was hosted by R-Biopharm Rhone, an international company working in the field of food analysis and clinical diagnostics and supported by Reading Scientific Services Ltd (RSSL), who provide expertise in analysis, product development and training to the global food, drink, pharmaceutical, healthcare, biopharmaceutical and consumer goods sectors.
The programme included several presentations on hot topics for corporate members of the Anaphylaxis Campaign including a presentation on ‘New and Old Food Allergens’ from Professor Jurgen Schwarze, Chair of Child Life and Health, University of Edinburgh, who explained the need for the food industry to be prepared for the unexpected and Victoria Johnson, UK Product Specialist (Food and Feed) at R-Biopharm Rhone, spoke about the opportunities and pitfalls when testing for allergens in food.
What our delegates said:
'Excellent talks covering testing methods, clinical studies and consumer affairs'
'All aspects covered were very interesting and relevant and it really opened your eyes to the risks'
'Well organised and very informative'
Lynne Regent, Chief Executive Officer of the Anaphylaxis Campaign said; “This conference is an important date for the Campaign. We enjoyed meeting with our corporate members in Scotland, a first for the Anaphylaxis Campaign, and learning more about key industry news and research relating to severe allergy and allergens.”
The next corporate conference will be held on the 22 November 2012 at the Leatherhead Food Research Centre, Surrey. If you are one of our corporate members and you are interested in attending you can find out more and register here. The conference is complimentary to all our corporate members.
