My Food Safety Journey

It is funny how, when you reflect on your life, events that seem insignificant at the time become the foundation of what drives you. For me, it is food safety and food poisoning prevention.  Hi, I am Amanda Evans-Lara and I am the face behind HACCP Mentor.

Some time back in the early 1980’s, I guess I would have been around 10 or 11 years old, I distinctly remember hearing about a food poisoning outbreak. It was all over the media in Australia – on the TV and in the papers. The food product at the centre of this food poisoning outbreak was said to be canned champignons (small mushrooms) imported from Taiwan.

My questions to my parents were relentless. How did it happen? Why did it happen? How can you stop it happening? How can people just die or get sick from eating food? Unfortunately, they were not able to give me enough answers, outside of what was reported by the media, to satisfy my curiosity. In hindsight, I think that this event, even though I did not know this at the time, was the catalyst to where I am today.  Read more
