Madeleine Smith: why food investigation has to be different
In this interview, Madeleine Smith talks about the changes that are needed in food investigation. Food supplies today come from across Britain, indeed from across the world. And so local authority-led food testing isn’t adequate. In addition, today’s EHOs are trained to test for the safety of food, not deal with organised crime.
Madeleine is a Teaching Fellow in Environmental Health at the University of Birmingham; i.e. she’s a key person in the training of tomorrow’s environmental health officers.
