STILL TIME TO ENTER THE OXOID FOOD AWARDS
Win £1,000 and a Trip to the 2006 IAFP Meeting in Florida
There is still time to enter the Oxoid Food and Brewing Awards (organised in conjunction with International Food Hygiene magazine) – but don’t leave it much longer as this year’s Awards close on 30 June 2006. Just ask your Oxoid Technical Representative for more details, contact Val Kane, Awards Co-ordinator at Oxoid (tel: +44 (0) 1256 841144, fax: +44 (0) 1256 329728, email: email@example.com) and you could win one of these major prizes:
Oxoid Laboratory Technician of the Year – the winner will receive £1,000 and be Oxoid’s guest in July 2007 at the International Association of Food Protection annual conference in Florida - a meeting that is widely regarded as the premier food safety and hygiene event. Previous winners have reported that they have gained useful insights into the latest trends, thinking and research by attending the conference seminars given by some of the industry’s most renowned experts. And, of course, it is a wonderful opportunity to meet and share experiences with colleagues from around the world.
Oxoid Laboratory of the Year – is an Award given for a real team effort, where the entry demonstrates that everyone has contributed to improved industry hygiene and safety standards. Winning this Award is highly motivating for the laboratory and the first prize of £500 is perfect for a team-building event!
The Judges’ Special Award - this Award is given at the Judges’ discretion to an outstanding individual or organisation that is worthy of special mention. If you, your team or organisation has undertaken work that is not entirely (or in any way) laboratory-based, but that makes a significant contribution to improving standards of hygiene and safety, then this Award category is the one for you. The prize winner will receive £500 and a commemorative trophy.
Winners will receive their prizes in front of an audience of food and brewing professionals at the Oxoid Food Seminar Day to be held in the UK in September 2006 and then attend a celebratory dinner given by Oxoid to honour their achievements.
