In the never-ending quest for excellent television, earlier this year I found Letterkenny, a six-episode show about a fictional Southern Ontario town with hockey players, hicks and skids.
It sort of reminds me of growing up in Port Hope.
The other Letterkenny, in County Donegal, Ireland, is hosting a workshop for food businesses to avoid recalls (and making customers sick).
The half-day workshop will feature experts from food safety, allergy and food hygiene and will provide practical advice on good food safety practices to help food businesses avoid a product recall.
Dr Gary Kearney, Director of Food Science, safefood, commented “Promoting food safety requires a multi-disciplinary approach backed by consumer research, professional partnerships, knowledge networks and information exchange. This half-day workshop is all about sharing experience and knowledge to help food businesses meet new challenges as they arise and maintain consumers’ confidence in the food they eat. I would encourage all interested food business owners to attend as we’ll have plenty of practical advice for them on topics ranging from the economic implications of a product recall to controlling bacterial contamination and how to manage food allergens.”
That’s a lot of stuff to pack into three hours.
