John BassettJohn Bassett, BVSc, Dip.Bus.Admin, MRCVS, FIFST 

John Bassett has nearly 20 years’ experience of risk assessment and risk management, in both industry and government roles, and is a skilled communicator on risk and food safety. A veterinarian by training, he brings a “farm to fork” perspective on food safety challenges.

He currently runs his own consultancy, John Bassett Consulting Ltd, which works with clients in the commercial food industry as well as governments and inter-governmental agencies.

John is particularly passionate about using risk assessment approaches to drive business cost savings and create competitive advantage, through a better understanding of product and process risks, and optimal risk management.

He is a past member of UK governmental advisory committees, the Advisory Committee for the Microbiological Safety of Food (ACMSF), and the Spongiform Encephalopathy Advisory Committee (SEAC); a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons; and a fellow of the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST).

When not enthusing about risk and food safety, he might be found practising what he preaches in the kitchen cooking for his wife and two veg, hugging his beloved espresso machine, or chasing down risks on his road bike or up some mountain.
