Throughout history, advances in food science and technology have played a critical role in meeting the needs of our evolving society. As a result, we now have much greater global access to an abundant, diverse food supply that is largely safe, flavorful, nutritious, convenient, and less costly than ever before.
On October 16, IFT is once again joining with organizations around the world to celebrate World Food Day. This public awareness effort commemorates the 1945 founding of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and is designed to promote increased understanding of hunger issues and the need for global access to nutritious food.
