(Drinks Media Wire). The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) has appointed Barbara Gallani to the post of Director of Food Safety and Science, replacing Helen Munday who leaves FDF at the end of this year for a role at Coca-Cola. Barbara will start in her new role in January 2010.
Barbara is currently an FDF Manager with responsibility for Public Affairs and the Biscuit, Cake, Chocolate and Confectionery Sector Group. In her new role, she will be responsible for the development, implementation and promotion of FDF’s policy with respect to scientific, technical and regulatory issues.
