The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT) has continued to expand its food industry membership with the appointment of Pal International Ltd as a supporting company member.
Established in 1970, Pal is a market leader in single use hygiene workwear, disinfectant wiping products for the food, beverage and industrial sectors, and is active in food manufacturing, food service and HORECA. With a continued commitment to UK manufacturing, Pal has invested in state of the art production facilities at its Lutterworth site, enabling it to develop and manufacture products that are sold under its Pal, Pal TX and Pal Tech brands.
Established by SOFHT in 2003, supporting company membership was set up as part of a major drive to enlist the support of larger organisations within the food manufacturing, retailing and related industries. The membership maximises the services provided to members, such as seminars and training events as well as helping to enhance SOFHT’s position as ‘the voice of food hygiene’. The role the society plays in helping the development in food safety management across the industry has been acknowledged by these supporting companies.
Richard Fell, business development manager - UK and Europe - food and beverage at Pal, said: “Having been a member of SOFHT for only a relatively short time, it has been clear that the support offered and the events hosted across the UK by SOFHT really engage with the industry: they are relevant and get people talking. For Pal to be involved with SOFHT at the very top level will help make sure that we can get involved at the start of important industry initiatives and put our business skills and insight to good use, helping shape the future of hygiene within the food and beverage sector.”
