Certified Food Scientist (CFS)

Make an impact on your career with CFS
The global food system continues to evolve into a system of immense size and complexity. Food science and technology professionals must be up to date on the latest developments in food science to address global food and consumer needs.  The Certified Food Scientist (CFS) credential is the only global certification for food science professionals. Unlike any other certification, the CFS designation recognizes the applied scientific knowledge and skills of global food professionals and provides a universal way to identify, cultivate, and retain top talent.

“As an employer looking for people from time to time, I think the CFS is a great opportunity to say that from an independent source these people have the capabilities to meet my needs and will be able to perform in that position. It’s a great way to help screen employees to see if they actually have that strong science background to be able to help deliver in the position I’m looking to fill.”
