What is a Fellow?
The IFT Fellow designation is an honor bestowed upon an IFT member by their peers, recognizing exemplary professionalism in the field of food science.
In a given year, no more than 0.3 percent of the professional membership is eligible, and even fewer than that will earn this honor.

Nomination of a Fellow
The nominee must be a Professional Member of IFT and have been in active practice of the profession for at least 15 years. If your nominee is not elected a Fellow in any given year, you may re-nominate him or her in a subsequent year.
Nominations for 2016 will be available in late 2015.
