This level was set up to enlist the support of larger organisations within the food manufacturing, retailing and related industries. It is the highest and most involved level.
Membership gives access to free places at SOFHT events, use of the logo and presence at meetings with representatives from member organisations which come together every six months.
Other such members include ALcontrol Laboratories, Asda, Biomaster, NSF International, SAI Global, Sealed Air Food Care and Needlers.
Tracey Black, sales director at Deb, said it has been supporting SOFHT as a corporate member for more than 10 years.
“SOFHT has helped us keep abreast of developments and issues within the food sector, enabling Deb to ensure that its products and services specifically meet the sector's hand hygiene and skin care needs,” she said.
“The society is a vital forum for networking with industry experts too and it has proved valuable for Deb's development in the food industry.
“We are keen to work even closer with SOFHT and its members, to share expertise and best practice, to help improve skin care behaviour and hand hygiene compliance in the industry and ultimately promote food safety.”
Deb operates in 18 countries where it claims products are used more than 150 million times each day.
Offerings consist of hand cleansers and sanitisers, pre-work and after-work creams, site surveys, staff skin condition evaluations plus training and educational tools.
