Science Council accolade for food fraud expert

Liz Moran, a scientist who advised government and industry during the horsemeat scandal, has been named as one of the UK’s top 100 practising scientists by The Science Council.

Moran, of Public Analyst Scientific Services and the President of the Association of Public Analysts, has been recognised for her work in championing consumer protection.

The horsegate expert has been involved in many discussions with government officials and has contributed to the publication of major government reports on enforcement of food standards in the last year.

She said: “I am delighted to be recognised and I hope that this will highlight the important scientific work that public analysts carry out to ensure the safety of the food chain. Food fraud is on the increase and public analysts need to have access to state of the art analytical technology to check the authenticity of food and stay one step ahead of the fraudsters.”

The Science Council has developed its top 100 list to highlight the important work that practising scientists undertake to support industry.
