My name is Keith Watkins and I have been working in the food industry for over 20 years mostly in Laboratory or QA roles with special interest in food microbiology. I have worked in manufacturing sites and contract laboratories. I decided to start this blog to help disseminate information about issues and updates in food microbiology and related topics that those of you in the industry may find interesting. The idea is not to have long-winded articles but just word bites that pass on information with links to the original articles. That way you can quickly scan what may be of interest to you and discard what is not. Please feel free to leave comments on issues that you may like included or issues about content.
