The 2015 Graham Jelfs Award: And the winner is…
09 April 2015
We’re really pleased to announce the winner of this year’s Harper Anderton sponsored Graham Jelfs Award: the fantastic Doug Poultney. Congrats Doug on your terrific achievement!
Doug really impressed his colleagues at Mars Food UK, thanks to the enthusiasm, eloquence and ambition he displayed during his placement. Working in a quality and food safety role, he focused predominantly on research & development and good manufacturing techniques.
We were lucky enough to have a chinwag with Doug over lunch, and can happily confirm he is a lovely guy and really passionate about the food industry. He’s looking forward to starting his new career, and we wish him all the luck in the world. Not that he’ll need it; after finishing his placement with the highest overall marks, he’ll definitely be making waves in the industry!
This is the second year the Graham Jelfs Award for Best Food Science Student on an Industrial Placement has been awarded by Reading University, since being renamed to honour influential food manufacturing professional Jelfs who sadly passed away in 2013. Harper Anderton is really proud to sponsor this award and to welcome bright new talent into the industry.
