Farewell Dr Mary Earle

18 May 2021 1:57 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


We sadly acknowledge the loss of one of our founders.  

Mary Earle passed away early on 19th April.  Everyone knows of Mary.  Almost everyone with more than 25 years Food Technology practice knows Mary personally.  In our industry with its one-point something degrees of separation, Mary touched everyone in some way.  She elevated product development to a science.  She drove appreciation of women in the workplace.  She set up a degree.  She co-wrote the text books with husband Dick.  She found people for jobs and jobs for people.  One way or another, by intelligence, by force of personality, by habitually being right and by Scottish cunning she shaped a good half our industry to set up the successes of today. 
Farewell to the great wee Mary
