Make an Impact on Your Career: All Your Certified Food Scientist Questions Answered

Food scientists are critical to the creation and accessibility of safe, nutritious, and scientifically viable food products. It is imperative that food professionals are recognized for their scientific accomplishments, their commitment to the profession and their role in addressing potential risks in the food system. One way of doing so is through a formal certification program – the Certified Food Scientist (CFS) – the only global certification program honoring food scientists’ practical, applied scientific knowledge and skills.

Nearly 1,500 professionals from 54 countries across the world have made an important step in their careers by earning the CFS credential. Obtaining the CFS credential is more than passing an exam – it is a demonstration of your professional commitment to excelling in the applied knowledge essential to the food science profession. The CFS credential also offers employers a reliable way to differentiate and identify applicants that are committed to professional development via a third party assessment. Now food scientists are formally recognized, like many other food professionals, for the critical role you play in the food enterprise.
