NZDA Honours Top Dietitian

Top New Zealand dietitian Liz Fitchett was last night [9 September] honoured with a New Zealand Dietetics Association (NZDA) Category Award of Excellence for Outstanding Achievement in Dietetics.

NZDA Executive Director, Jan Milne, said the Award of Excellence is presented to dietitians who have been nominated by colleagues for their outstanding work in the field of dietetics.

“Throughout her career, Liz has made a remarkable contribution to dietetics, particular in the field of food safety practices,” Jan said.

“She has demonstrated exemplary leadership and worked tirelessly to raise the profile of the profession.”

During her career, Liz has been instrumental in the development, teaching and implementation of national food safety standards and practices.

“She’s currently teaching at Waiariki Institute of Technology as a food safety lecturer. In the past, Liz has worked with government, industry organisations and food service businesses to develop and implement national food safety standards and programmes,” Jan said.

“Liz is highly regarded by her peers for the way she ensures food safety training meets the learning needs of her students by using interactive methods to engage them.”

Jan said Liz’s expertise sees her regularly facilitate food safety programme forums to identify issues in food safety education and the provision of effective solutions. She has also co-authored a widely used food safety text book - Safe Food.

“Her talents and dedication to the profession make her highly deserving of an Award of Excellence.”

The NZDA is the professional association representing over 550 registered dietitians and associated nutrition professionals throughout New Zealand.
