Our Panel of Experts comprises people from outside the city who can advise us from time to time. It’s a means for us to be up to date on relevant matters and have a sounding board on matters of mutual concern. It’s also an opportunity for Panel members to hear about what a major UK city is doing on food matters, particularly at a strategic level.
We’re delighted that Roberta Friedman and Lisa Jack have joined the Panel.
She educates federal, state and local policy makers and advocacy organisations about food policy and obesity research, and creates resources to help them write and implement effective obesity prevention policies.
Roberta was a member of the New Haven, CT, Food Policy Council for three years.
Lisa Jack is Professor in Accounting at Portsmouth Business School.
Lisa has a career as an auditor in both the private and public sectors as an accountant as well as her current role in academia. She has particular expertise and consulting experience in forensic accountancy.
Her main research interests are in how accounting practices in the agri-food industry are very different from those in other industries. She’s part of the Food Fraud Group at Portsmouth Business School.
