I decided to apply because I wanted to showcase the many years of effort and commitment from all levels at Labatts breweries to expand our food safety standards and become a leader in our industry. Often consumers forget that a brewery makes a consumable product and I wanted to make sure they understood our commitment to food safety and the quality of the beverage we produce.

This award is a great source of pride to all members of the Oland Brewery team and is proudly displayed in our main office.

Food Safety Leadership

Winner

 

"As an advocate for the 2.5 million Canadian who have food allergies I was enormously honoured to be selected as the first recipient of the 2013 NSF-GFTC Leadership in Food Safety award. To be chosen by a committee of highly respected food industry leaders and honoured by an organization that is dedicated to providing food safety education and accreditation is humbling. However, it is import to share this honor with my colleagues at Anaphylaxis Canada and to acknowledge NSF-GFTC, Health Canada, CFIA and the food industry for their partnership in this important food safety initiative."
