Recent Food and Nutrition Alumni event:

Alumni event 25 February 2011

Location: the Aviary hotel, 271 Victoria Street, Abbotsford

It is always great to re-aquaint ourselves with past graduates who have moved on to ‘greener pastures’ with industry in general. Such an event occurred on Friday 25 February at the Aviary hotel.  A number of staff including Dr Phillip Parker, Dr Gie Liem, Dr Adel Yousif and myself enjoyed the great social atmosphere and turnout of over 19 graduates and postgraduates in food science and nutrition and two of the undergraduate FANs group. In all, 25 attendees including Stephen Micallef (Coles Py Ltd), Alan Plymin (Sensient technologies Pty Ltd),  Danni Millton (BDC Building Group), Jo Dixon (Kraft Foods Pty Ltd), Simone Haack (IFF Pty Ltd), Helen Hong (Kraft Foods Pty Ltd), Sarah Smith (Sensient technologies Pty ltd)  Angela Stevens (Cabrini Hospital), Katherine Manshiem (Nestle), Emma Arena (General Mills Pty Ltd.), Yu-Anne Yap, Clare Jack (Riviana Foods), Jessica Sharples (Popina Food services), Janelle Kwon (Sensient Technologies Pty Ltd), Amy Tracey (nee Harmer), Lay Tin Lee ( Dietetics); our two FANs members Emma Jenkins  and Stefanie Lekkas; and the three postgraduate nutritionist attendees Kate Delley (Diabetes Australia), Caitlin Syrett (Diabetes Australia) and Danielle De Natris.

We had a great time and hope to see more Alumni at our next gathering, especially more postgraduate nutritionists!
