CAFRE has a history of receiving recognition from CIEH for its excellence in training. However, three awards in a row are particularly notable.

Trainee Alison Foster obtained the highest marks in the UK on successful completion of the CIEH Level IV Award in Food Safety Management for Manufacturing. CAFRE staff-member Mrs Claire Millar has received the distinction of receiving the award of the best CIEH-trainer in the UK. And completing the hat trick, CAFRE's Loughry Campus has received the award of the best CIEH centre in the UK.

All three awards will be conferred at a special ceremony at the House of Lords in July, 2015.
