The UK chilled food industry leads the world in the standards and systems used to produce chilled prepared foods. These standards are used as the basis of European industry professional guidelines and are promoted worldwide by the CFA.

Kaarin Goodburn, CFA’s Secretary General said, “We are very proud of our relaunched website which is at the cutting edge in terms of the information it provides for its members, the food industry in general, regulatory bodies and the wider public. CFA is recognised by UK and European Government departments and agencies as the voice of the UK chilled prepared food industry. With over 130,000 page views in the last year it is important that our interface with the public and the industry communicates our message clearly.”
