The UK Food Standards Authority has announced that Professor Guy Poppy of the University of Southampton will become its new Chief Scientific Adviser in August 2014. Taking up this part time role, Poppy will continue at the university with his research into global food security.

"High quality and independent science is required to allow government and consumers to make informed decisions, especially at a time where food security and food costs are becoming increasingly debated. I look forward to serving as the Chief Scientific Adviser to the FSA and will help contribute to ensuring that there is safer food for the nation," said Poppy after his appointment. His wide experience in food systems and food security will stand him in good stead for his new role.

The chief executive of the FSA, Catherine Brown, said "I am delighted that Guy has taken up this role. It’s a very important appointment for the FSA and underlines our commitment to the very best science to underpin our work. Guy will bring flair and a wealth of relevant experience to the job and I and my fellow directors and the FSA board look forward to working with him."
