On October 16, the world celebrated World Food Day, which is designed to increase awareness and motivate year-around action to alleviate hunger. In 2010, IFT published a Scientific Review discussing the importance of food science and technology in feeding a growing population. Recently, Kelly Hensel, Digital Media Editor at IFT, spoke with one of the main authors of the review, John Floros, to discuss this important global issue. John has worked in the food processing industry, was on the faculty at Purdue University, and since 2000 he has been leading the Department of Food Science at Pennsylvania State University. He is widely published, is currently a Member of the Science Board for the Food & Drug Administration, and a Fellow and Past President of IFT. You can now listen to Parts 1 and 2 of the interview on IFT's ePerspective blog. Make sure you share your thoughts on food science and technology's role in feeding a growing population!
