Exploring new horizons
Exploring new horizons
“A strong, well-organized foundation with a deliberate value strategy, built on presentday statutes and clearly defined operational guidelines - that is what the members of the EHEDG leadership set out to achieve back in 2015. Now that I am well on my way in my second term of this presidency, I am happy that the EHEDG organization is well on track: the new election processes and allocations of resources are implemented, the advisory board and executive committee structures are well established, and with our dedicated sub-committees in place, this foundation now has the hands and feet it needs to operate effectively.
A rapidly growing number of food producing companies recognizes the many food safety benefits of hygienic engineering and design. With this emerging global awareness, EHEDG is growing rapidly as well. The European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group foundation is now truly becoming the preferred global knowledge community for sharing contemporary insights in how to raise food safety to a whole new level.
EHEDG will continue to operate as a foundation for the common benefit of its members, because this community thanks its comprehensive body of knowledge exclusively to its voluntary contributors. Food safety is the result of a team effort. We may all be experts in our own rights, but we are connected by our shared concern for food safety. Together we continue to build on what our predecessors have created over the course of decades: a leading hygienic engineering and design knowledge community with a global impact.
As we move on, we continue to close the remaining gaps in our product portfolio. While new EHEDG Guideline Documents are being developed, existing ones must be updated to stay relevant. We’d like to broaden our certification scope to meet the growing industry demand for certified food-safe processing and handling systems. Simultaneously, we develop new ways to make our training and education programs accessible for everyone. We consistently focus on maximizing the practical value of the products and services that EHEDG offers, because above all, we want to make sure that scientists, food industry stakeholders and equipment suppliers can reap many practical benefits from their EHEDG memberships.”
