We are pleased to announce that Dr Lisa Szabo will be speaking at our first Biennial Stakeholder forum: Fit for purpose—food regulation now and in the future, in Sydney on 5 March 2019.
Dr Szabo is the Chief Executive Officer of the New South Wales Food Authority. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours from the University of Queensland and was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy degree in microbiology from the same university. She had post-doctoral research experiences in the United Kingdom and Germany and has been an expert advisor or member on several national and state government inquiries and committees. Lisa also represents the interests of NSW on the Food Regulation Standing committee.
Our stakeholder surveys show there is a little bit of confusion about the role FSANZ plays in the food regulation system.
Check out this video on our website to find out more on who we are and what we do.
Who we are and what we do
If you are in a food business you should know how the recall system works. FSANZ has developed a number of resources for businesses and information about how recalls work. Find the info here.
Have a happy (and safe!) festive season
FSANZ would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year.
Be sure to stay food-safe during the festive season by reading up on our website about reducing your risk of food poisoning through food contamination (after all, no one wants to receive the gift of Campylobacter for Christmas!)
Our offices will be closed from Christmas Eve and we will reopen on Wednesday 2 January 2019.
