Member Referral Program No one is better qualified to spread the word about the benefits of membership in IFT than you, a dedicated member.

Being part of something larger than ourselves helps us gain a greater sense of self and purpose. As a collective association, we are better equipped to advance our work further, faster, and with more impact. In doing so, we solidify the understanding that science and innovation are essential to providing a safe, nutritious, and sustainable food supply for all.

Spread the word! By sharing IFT with your friends and colleagues, you’re helping build a strong community of professionals who share similar interests as you with whom you can connect and collaborate. To help you, we’ve created a member referral tool kit for you to access with a variety of referral resources.

And the Member Referral Challenge winner is…
