2014 marks the 75th anniversary of IFT, and next year will be the 75th anniversary of the Annual Meeting & Food Expo, our annual event. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the past, make exciting plans for the future, and promote the impact of the science of food in the world.
In 2014, as part of celebrating our 75th anniversary, IFT launched the FutureFood 2050 program. This exciting publishing initiative began with a series of interviews featuring the stories of scientists, prominent figures, influencers, and personalities in both the food world and beyond. These interviews are being used as the foundation for a documentary film, which is already well underway, that will showcase future food challenges and the innovations ahead. The goal of both the interviews and the film is to tell the story of how food science and technology will provide solutions throughout our food system to feed the world sustainably by 2050.
New stories are being published all the time. Please Visit the FutureFood 2050 site to view the latest ones.

Join us in celebrating the science of food, and how it will help sustain our growing global population!
