EHEDG New Zealand
Regional Section of EHEDG established for New Zealand
David Lowry, FNZIFST, Lowry Food Consultants
A regional section of the European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG) was formally established at the plenary meeting of the EHEDG World Congress in London in late November 2018.
The initiative to establish a regional section for New Zealand was spearheaded by David Lowry, based on his assessment of a food safety need and resource gap in the New Zealand food industry and its supply chain that he gained over a lifetime of industry troubleshooting and consultation. His experience showed that flaws in hygienic design of facilities and equipment were very frequently the basis for food safety issues, arising from a combination of factors including limited access to knowledge and technical resources, failure to engage all relevant stakeholders in decisions and insufficient focus on hygienic design principles.
Please contact David via e-mail regarding any aspect of EHEDG membership, benefits and activities. He would be delighted to hear from you regarding becoming a member and/or participating in committee functions.
