Food additives presentation

Laura Parr, Head Nutritionist, Jamie Oliver Limited

Laura Parr

"We have been looking to educate the Food Team at Jamie Oliver Limited in thinking more about the additives in food, but we wanted to provide them with rational, sound, scientific information on this subject. We had really come up against a brick wall to getting more accurate information about additives and E numbers until we discovered the Sense About Science website. Finding this fantastic charity has been a great catalyst to getting the right information from credible sources.


Sense About Science brought together a group of specialists, and a designer to create a fantastic in-depth, easy to understand presentation for use within our business. With the material which they have developed it has helped form our food standards and better educate our team."
