We at The A Specialist are so excited to reinvigorate our blog, and announce that we are sending The A Specialist VP and expert in Food Safety & Compliance, Michael Cummings, on a mission trip to Uganda and Malawi. He will be accompanied by Food Safety Experts Norman Van Gelder and Dale Deleake.
Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa whose diverse landscape encompasses the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains and immense Lake Victoria. Its abundant wildlife includes chimpanzees as well as rare birds. Remote Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a renowned mountain gorilla sanctuary. Murchison Falls National Park in the northwest is known for its 43m-tall waterfall and wildlife such as hippos.
Malawi, a landlocked country in southeastern Africa, is defined by its topography of highlands split by the Great Rift Valley and enormous Lake Malawi. The lake’s southern end falls within Lake Malawi National Park – sheltering diverse wildlife from colorful fish to baboons – and its clear waters are popular for diving and boating. Peninsular Cape Maclear is known for its beach resorts.
Check back in frequently for updates. We will be instructing best practices for Food Safety and Compliance in key areas of Uganda and Malawi, and explaining why we chose these particular venues.
