Combating campylobacter infection requires a broad industry approach of co-ordinated action, according to Food Manufacture's Big Video Debate on the subject at Foodex last month.

Here we capture some of the video highlights of the wide-ranging panel debate. Hot topics under discussion included the contribution of rapid surface chilling, farm bioscurity, the role of the Food Standards Agency and home hygiene.

British Poultry Council

Answering the question what developments will help curb infections over the next five years, we heard from, in order, Richard Griffiths, director, food policy at British Poultry Council, Rod Addy, editor of's sister titles Meat Trades Journal​ and Global Meat News​ and Jeremy Hall, group technical director, Bernard Matthews.

Big Video Debate

The Big Video Debate on campylobacter took place at Foodex on Monday, April 18. Don't miss our exclusive video interview ​with the Bernard Matthews boss on how rapid surface chilling was “the nearest thing the sector has to a silver bullet” ​to control campylobacter infections.

Other Big Video Debates​ taking place at Foodex focused the role of apprenticeships​ in plugging Britain's growing skills gap and how best to protect your food or drink business​ against criminals.

Foodex took place at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham between April 18 and 19.
