Food industry training firm Verner Wheelock is celebrating 30 years in business by hosting an online lecture by a leading ‘low-carb’ professional.

The company, based in Skipton, North Yorkshire, was founded by professor Verner Wheelock in 1990, the same year that the Food Safety Act was introduced in the UK.

Customers, trainers, auditors, suppliers and friends of the company joined Verner Wheelock himself and the training company staff online for the webinar delivered by Ivor Cummins.

Cummins is the chief program officer for Irish Heart Disease Awareness, and for the past eight years, he has been researching the root causes of modern chronic diseases, with a focus on cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity.

The lecture uncovered theories about the current pandemic and the effects of Government policies and the nation’s current health, wellbeing and nutrition on Covid-19 mortality rates.

Managing director, Alison Wheelock, said: “It was lovely that so many customers and associates took time out to celebrate our 30th anniversary with us. We’re very proud of how the company has grown over the past three decades.

“It was also great to have such an informative and thought-provoking webinar from Ivor Cummins, which was very well received by all. Here’s to the next thirty years.”
