Regrettably, not New Year honours from the Queen, but still awards to be proud of. Moray Anderson has become an Honorary Professor at the University of Birmingham and Chris Turner has been awarded a fellowship by SOFHT.

Just before Christmas, Dr Moray Anderson, technical director of the Killgerm Group, received an early present. In a letter from the Vice Chancellor of the University of Birmingham, he advised him that the Promotions and Titles Committee of the University had conferred on him the title of Honorary Professor in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences with effect from 1 January 2010.

This post was conferred on Moray in recognition of his involvement in two courses at the university – notably the post graduate training of environmental health students and also post graduate students in food safety, hygiene and management. This latter course is administered by the School of Chemical Engineering, hence the title of the professorship.

Commenting on his professorship, Moray said: “I am extremely pleased and honoured by the conferment on me of this prestigious award.” Since 1996 Moray has held a visiting Professorship at the Department of Entomology and Nematology at the University of Florida, Gainesville, USA.

Chris Turner, general manager of Hampshire-based Rokill Pest Control, was also celebrating. At its annual luncheon held in London, the Society of Food Hygiene Technology (SOFHT) awarded him a fellowship of the Society.

SOFHT fellowships are awarded at the discretion of the SOFHT council to members who have contributed exceptional and outstanding service to the Society.

“Since its inception, SOFHT has only awarded 29 fellowships, so I feel highly honoured to be recognised in such a manner,” said Chris.
