60-second interview with David Wolf

Read this 60-second interview with FoodChain ID Certification’s technical manager David Wolf, where he discusses middle lane drivers, coal barbeques and gives his 12 month-predictions for the food industry.

Describe yourself in three words.

Fun, hardworking, loyal.

What’s your biggest professional achievement?

Having a professional paper published while in the middle of my undergraduate degree.

How did you get to where you are today?

Working my way up through the ranks and trying my hand at lots of different areas of the food industry – from artwork and specification legal checking, sales and NPD work, before entering the world of auditing throughout Europe and across the globe.

What does a typical day look like for you?

It ranges from feeding my one-year-old son breakfast, changing clothes for the second time and heading upstairs to help answer my colleague’s questions through Skype and email to getting out and about, meeting clients, auditing sites and witnessing auditors. The variety of my day is the exciting part of the job.

What have been the highlights of your company’s history, in your opinion?

FoodChain ID Certification is the market leader in non GMO certification, auditing and all other non GMO services. The company was founded from finding a gap in this area of the food industry and, while expanding in other fields, it is still market leader for non GMO certification and regularly issues technical bulletins on the subject, guiding the industry on GM testing and traceability requirements.

What is your pet hate?

Being on the road quite a lot, middle lane drivers and roadworks with no one working.

Give us a positive prediction for the food industry over the next 12 months.

Greater education in food preparation and food origins which will help consumers make better and more informed choices.
