We had a great turnout at the 2016 Golf Tournament. 74 golfers joined us on June 28, 2016 for a beautiful sunny day of golf at Piper's Heath Golf Club in Milton.
The day started with a Technical Session on Top 10 Food Safety Developments That Could Save Your Business! Presented by Iain Wright, B.Sc. Technical Manager, NSF Training and Education Services. see Iain Wright's bio, he discussed If the food you produce is safe, your business is safe.

From Food Fraud to a Hole in One - June 10, 2015
The 13th Annual Golf Tournament held at Pipers Health Club has been a regular fixture in the OFPA calendar and this year’s event was another great success. The morning technical session was delivered in partnership with NSF-GFTC with Iain Wright delivering presentations on managing the risk of food fraud and risk assessment & preventative control. Those who attended not only received updated knowledge on two of the hottest topics in the food sector but also a certificate of attendance to strengthen their professional profile.
Lunch was again provided by Pillers Meats who also sent their two energy bunnies, Pek and Angela, to help the event run smoothly. Colonial Cookies provided their irresistible cookies to sweeten the day before the intrepid golfers took to the green.
There were over 80 golfers in this year’s competition and fortunately the threatened storm that day decided to go around rather than through the course. As traditional, there were several awards throughout the day. The most prestigious award for the winning foursome threw up a surprise with the tournament favorites, Team Cassidy, were squeezed out of the top spot by Team Dunn. Honorable mention to the foursome from Abell with Mike Stanley for their effort and their support. Other competition winners were:- Longest Drive (Men) – John Klossen – Lakeshore Vegetables; Longest Drive (Women) – Daphne Nuys-Hall – OIMP; Closest to the Pin (Women) – Antoinette Graham.
The day was capped off by the tournament dinner that was appreciated by all.
June 19th, 2014 | Piper’s Heath Golf Club
OFPA’s 12th Annual golf outing at Piper’s Heath was a big success! It has always been a lot of fun for everyone, but this year lived up to the tournaments past! The morning technical sessions were well attended and very informative. NSF-GFTC provided 2 Sessions: “Allergen Validation” and “Training at the Moment of Need.”
Then, after a delicious BBQ, it was time to enjoy the beautiful day and hit some balls! Many of the golfers took part in some of our annual contests, such as Chipping Contests, Putting Contests, Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin. Then, after a great day of golf, it was time to enjoy dinner at the Piper’s Heath Club House.
Congratulations to the OFPA Golf Tournament Foursome Winners – for the 2nd year in a row – Mike Cassidy, Jack Trevors, Domenic Marner and Waylon Sharp. Thank you to Sani-Marc, the official sponsor of the day, and thanks to everyone who came out and had a great time!
