UCLan-Cultivate Food Safety Culture for Business Performance

Launched in 2020, the UCLan-Cultivate initiative invites leaders in the food industry to better understand their business’ culture of safety.  This new technological solution enables both real-time food safety culture measurement and assessment of the impact of culture interventions during a weekly cyclic continuous improvement process.

Led by our Professor of Food Safety Management Systems and Co-Director of the Nutritional Sciences and Applied Food Safety Studies Group and Prof. Carol A. Wallace, and Principal of Cultivate Food Safety in Switzerland, Dr. Lone Jespersen. This project works with businesses individually to collect and analyse data using the innovative technology platform, Cultivate Pulse.
