Workgroups & Committees Our members include some of the best and brightest minds in food science and technology.

One way they help advance the profession is by volunteering to serve in a variety of leadership positions. In these important volunteer roles, members help develop scientific policy and position statements, contribute to the success of our scientific journals, and guide the development of education and training programs for their peers.
