SOFHT Dorothy Cullinane Award 2017 for Kaarin Goodburn MBE

CFA Director Kaarin Goodburn MBE has been honoured with the Society of Food Hygiene and Technology’s Dorothy Cullinane Award.

Presented exclusively by the SOFHT Council it recognises a ‘company or person that has made an outstanding contribution to the food industry, with particular emphasis on food safety and/or food hygiene and/or food technology’. The award was created in memory of Dorothy Cullinane, expert in food labelling and allergy.


SOFHT Chairman Ian Booth said: “This award celebrates the year’s most significant contribution to the food industry. Kaarin receives it for her work on biocide regulation. Since 2014 she has led on biocides issues for UK industry, bringing together some 20 UK trade and professional organisations on the Food & Biocides Industry Group (FBIG).  Under her leadership the group has spearheaded the development of guidance on biocide use in cleaning and disinfection. This, coupled with co-ordinating lobbying at UK and EU level, helped secure recognition by the European Commission that food hygiene and safety must be assured in the regulation of biocides.
