Laurens Sloot named food manager of the year

06 oktober 2017

Professor Laurens Sloot was named Food Manager of the Year at the National Food Congress this week, a key event in the calendar of the Dutch food industry.

Food Manager of the Year award

Sloot was selected from a shortlist by a jury of food industry figures including Gerard van Dulmen, the director of Superunie, and Sander van der Laan, CEO of Action. “We see Laurens Sloot as an industry expert who is able to advocate the opportunities and threats facing the food industry to an audience beyond our sector,” the jury’s judgement read. “He does this consistently in a thoughtful and considered way, with full consideration for the market stakeholders that he analyses in his work.” The jury also praised Sloot’s work as academic director of the EFMI Business School, saying that he had managed to develop it into a “flourishing knowledge institute and training hub for the sector”.

The Food Manager of the Year award is an initiative of FoodPersonality magazine, a monthly publication for the supermarket sector.
