Dr. Jeff Banks
Managing Consultant @Food Safety Assurance
Leadership of a global cross functional change programme to improve the quality performance and image of the business, leverage efficiencies and increase customer satisfaction.
Prof. Dr. Lars Fieseler
Advisor Food Safety
Since I joined the research group of Martin Loessner at ETH Zurich (CH) in 2006, I am working on the isolation, characterization, application, and modification of bacteriophages. I am fascinated about the mechanisms of phage infection, the interaction of host bacteria and phages, and the concept of exploring phages and phage-derived proteins for the specific detection and control of pathogens. I am excited to work on state-of-the-art phage engineering to develop novel and specific phage-derived antimicrobials for future applications in food, agriculture, and beyond.
Since 2011 I have been leading the Food Microbiology research group at zhaw in Wädenswil (CH). Here, we determine the activity of bacteriophages and phage-derived antimicrobials in challenge tests with food-borne pathogens.
Due to the rise of antimicrobial resistance in many food-associated bacteria, we determine the prevalence of such bacteria in food. If interesting isolates are discovered, a new phage can be isolated to control it...
Food Safety Microbiologist
Food Security and Food Safety have become a global challenge to feed a growing population, the safest and mode sustainable way, whenever and wherever possible.
From mid 2001 to late 2016, I have had the pleasure to focus my activities on the food safety topics of the dairy industry - high moisture foods and RTE product through the International Dairy Federation (IDF) and Food Business Operators (Soparind Bongrain - Savencia, Danone, Nestlé, Barry Callebaut, Danone).
Since early 2017, I do work as food safety microbiologist and hygienist for the different stakeholders of the food industry.
SInce 2010, I am delegate of France at the International Dairy Federation (IDF) for the standing committees on microbiological hygiene (SCMH), harmonization of microbial methods (SCHMM) and analytical methods of dairy microorganisms (SCAMDM). I do represent IDF at Codex Alimentarius working groups and ISO Technical meeting.
A purpose-driven open innovation leader with people-centric values. My USP is that I scale opportunities at start-ups and in large corporates effectively, sustainably and profitably all via a multi-layered international network.
My interests and network are centred around: new products, technology, sustainability, health, nutrition and wellness. Generating partnerships and creating mutual value are my drivers.
