Dr. Mejed Heni, Who are you ?

I'm a doctor in Veterinary Medicine, and a consultant and auditor in food safety management systems. I mainly assist companies to implement their food safety management systems in order to be audited and certified. I work in different stages of the food chain, and look at vegetable packing, slaughterhouses, meat manufactures, logistics companies and the retail sector. I've been working with international programs around Africa and it has always been such a wonderful opportunity to get to know other cultures, meet different people, and work together towards the same objectives.
