Winner of AIFST's Keith Farrer Award

AUSTRALIA - Allan Bremner has been named the 2008 winner of the Keith Farrer Award of Merit by Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST).

The Keith Farrer Award of Merit is given for outstanding achievements in contributions to food science and technology in the wide areas of research, industry and education, and recognises offerings that further the aims and objectives of the AIFST.

Allan Bremner’s contribution to the Australian and international food industry, food science community and the AIFST spans several decades and is particularly focussed on seafood - quality, freshness, shelf life and aquaculture harvesting.

Perhaps his significant contribution is the development of what is now known as the Quality Index Method (QIM) that evaluates current storage life and estimates remaining shelf-life. QIM adopted in industry and at auctions, is recognised by the EU and is now the standard reference method in research and commerce throughout Europe.

"Allan Bremner has made significant contributions to a number of high ranking international journals, run practical courses around the world and supported the AIFST for over 30 years," recognises Peter Lancaster, AIFST President.

"He's a worthy winner who has assisted in bridging the social and geographical network in the food industry between Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South East Asia, Scandinavia, the EU and the US," Mr Lancaster added.
