IAFoST Fellows are nominated by their peers, to recognise and acknowledge each Fellow’s commitment and impact on the global food safety sector. As a newly elected Fellow, Carol will work alongside other members to promote high standards of ethics and the use of technologies to improve food safety standards. The IAFoST is the global voice of food science and technology, aiming to promote food advancements in global food technologies and encourage countries to share scientific learnings through journals, books and an annual international congress. Being elected to the IAFoST Fellowship is a huge accolade and one that Carol is extremely well-deserving of.

With 35 years working in the Food Safety industry under her belt, Carol is now widely-recognised as an expert on HACCP systems of food safety management. She has written several best-selling books on the subject, which have influenced the increasingly-high standards of the international food safety industry. Food Safety is a key campaigning, educational and training area for RSPH and having someone as highly-regarded in the industry as Carol on our board is a huge asset for the organisation.

On receiving the Fellowship, Carol Wallace, Professor of Food Safety Management Systems said:

"I’m really delighted to have been elected as the Academy only selects a small group of new fellows every two years. Receiving this recognition for the food safety work I’ve undertaken throughout my career is a real honour and I’m pleased that this links so well with one of the key areas of focus at RSPH".
