Food Processing

With focused, credible resources and up-to-date understanding of scientific and engineering principles, IFT helps you improve existing processing and packaging practices. You’ll find new information to improve the quality, efficiency, and sustainability of processing and packaging efforts. Your learning can also be applied in the development of new products, processes, packaging materials, and techniques.
