As a Food Safety Specialist with Commercial Food Sanitation since 2012, Karin partners with food processors in their food safety journey, in particular driving sanitation and hygienic design improvements.  Over 20 years of working with many food processors and equipment manufacturers in all food segments has afforded her a unique perspective when supporting the food industry.  Karin is passionate about training and continuous improvement and believes these always go hand in hand to make a positive change in food safety culture.

Karin is an active member of the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG), participated in several guideline sub-groups and is a board-member for EHEDG Australia which started in 2019. Karin also shares her passion for food safety as a columnist for ‘Food Processing Vakblad’.
