Memorial for Hyam Myers

AOCS was saddened to hear of the passing of Hyam Myers, a longtime member of AOCS since 1984.

The majority of his career was spent at Unilever, followed by Marrickville. He also served as a consultant for the New Zealand Dairy Board with a focus on pastry butter and for Abels, New Zealand with a focus on pastry margarine.

In retirement, Hyam focused on dry refining of oils using calcium hydroxide instead of sodium hydroxide. Hyam also had a number of patents awarded to him.

His legacy in the field of fats and oils will be remembered for generations to come.
