Congratulations to Dr Belinda Stuart-Moonlight who was awarded Expert Witness of the year for 2019, in the area of Environmental health in the Lawyer Monthly awards.
Dr Belinda Stuart-Moonlight is one of the UK’s foremost food safety and infectious disease experts, providing expert witness services since 2001. She is tenaciously thorough, her growing reputation built on exacting attention to detail. Her numerous successful outcomes are grounded in scientific knowledge and ongoing experience of industry practice through her consultancy, training and auditing work.
Dr Belinda Stuart-Moonlight cut her teeth as an EHO in Central London and went on to conduct food and microbiology research at King’s College University of London. She began consultancy work in the late 1990s and established Moonlight Environmental in 2001.
One of her early clients was the iconic Borough Market, now well known as ‘foodie heaven’ to connoisseurs but then very much in its infancy as a fine food market. Moonlight Environmental grew up with the market and still retains the pick of those start-up stallholders, some of whom have become multi-million pound traders.
As growers and producers, they were largely unaware of a need for advice and certification. Belinda, engaged by the Trustees of Borough Market as trader auditor and workplace safety adviser, was soon regarded by those ambitious businesses as indispensable.
With her roots still in consultancy, auditing and training, she is never out of touch with the day-to-day business of best practice and problem prevention. This means her expert witness work is informed by current industry practice, in addition to considerable experience, knowledge and wisdom.
