Envision what the very best minds in food science can achieve when they work together: providing each and every person on the planet with access to a safe and abundant food supply.
For more than 70 years, the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) has been unlocking the potential of the food science community by creating a dynamic global forum where members from more than 100 countries can share, learn, and grow.
We’ve helped the members of this community connect both in person, through scientific and technical education venues and forums such as the world’s largest annual food expo, and virtually, through our publications and other resources.
By serving as a leading advocate for food science and a catalyst for change around the world, we’ve educated the media and policy makers and worked with governments to shape regulations.
As a visionary organization, IFT is feeding the minds that feed the world.
