Fellows Election as an IFT Fellow is a unique professional distinction conferred for outstanding and extraordinary contributions in the field of food science and technology.

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 will open October 10, 2013 and close January 31, 2014.
