ABOUT....... Professor Emerita Mary Davidson Earle OBE
Throughout her years, Dr Mary, as she was known, was constantly engaged with the food industry, and in 1966, introduced Product Development to the Food Technology degree at Massey University. The NZIFST was one of Mary’s passions – from drafting and ensuring the adoption of the Institute’s first Code of Ethics in 1969, to supporting the Foodwatch and Careers programmes of the 1980’s, and as the instigator of the Food Awards, Mary actively participated in NZIFST throughout her life. She received the NZIFST’s JC Andrews award in 1979. In 1994 Massey University awarded her a personal chair, and in 2018 made her, along with her husband Dick, Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa). During her long working life, Mary practised most successfully, the mentoring advocated here in this award.
