Our IFT sections connect members with other food science and technology professionals in their local area.  Each section is an extension of IFT that boasts a unique flavor catering to the professional fields represented in their geographic region.  All are welcome!

Our sections plan a variety of events throughout the year.  From Suppliers’ Nights, technical sessions and philanthropic activities to new professional and student focused events; each section has something for everyone to share in.  Fun with a purpose is our goal! 

Are you new to the area and looking for a way to connect with people?  IFT sections offer a great way to network with other food professionals.  You will get to know members that you can call on when you have a question that you can’t answer and build friendships that will last a lifetime. 

If you are interested in seeing if there is a section near you, please review the complete listing of all of IFT’s sections.  If you have additional questions you can e-mail them to

“The enthusiasm and momentum in the Longhorn Section is contagious! Section meetings feature educational topics relevant to food science and promote networking opportunities that enhance the profession.”
