Accolade for Sainsbury’s safety chief
Sainsbury’s head of product quality, safety and supplier performance has been presented with the Most Significant Contribution to Food Safety award by the Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT).
The award, won by Alec Kyriakidesis, is given to an individual who the SOFHT board believes has made ‘an outstanding contribution to championing food safety in the industry’.
“This award to Alec was a unanimous decision,” says Catherine Watkinson, chair of SOFHT. “The broad scope of his contribution to the food industry, not only from a food safety perspective but also the contribution he has made to food hygiene and food technology, is immense. Alec is a recognised name for many of our members and continues to support the industry with his knowledge and passion.”
