A Partner in leading regional law firm Roythornes turned lecturer for the day recently as she gave apprentices studying for a career in the food sector an insight into the practical issues relating to Food Regulation.

The session featured Hannah Leese, Partner and head of Roythornes Food regulatory team, talking to a group of students at Lincoln University National Centre for Food Manufacturing about her experience of helping food businesses tackle regulatory issues.

Speaking about the session, Albany Ward, Lecturer in Food Manufacturing at the University said: “It was an incredibly interesting session and so useful for our students to hear how what they are learning feeds into practical issues on the factory floor. Hannah’s case studies brought their learning into perspective and we’re very grateful to her for giving up her time.”

Hannah said: “I was delighted to run the session. The University is developing the food sectors’ leaders of the future, and as a firm so heavily involved in the sector ourselves, we felt it was a natural fit. The National Centre for Food Manufacturing is a great example of an educational body that understands business and engages with them in a positive way.”

After the success of the event, the University and Roythornes are already busy planning further sessions with their food sector experts.
