SAAFoST Sensory Forum Fun Event and Lecture

The Sensory Forum has organised a sensory fun event which is followed by a lecture.

The sensory fun event is named:

The Amazing race - the Sensory way!

Come and have some sensory fun while enjoying a little exercise and some fresh air. As in any race, team work, speed, a mind that is able to figure out clues and super sharp senses are required. Are you up to the challenge?

We'll end the afternoon with an insightful lecture by Rosemary Maguire titled:

'Natural' - does it still have a place in the food industry?
