Membership Types There are IFT membership types to fit every phase of your career.

IFT Members

IFT has several different categories of membership. Anyone who is active in any aspect of the food profession and interested in supporting the objectives of IFT is welcome to become a member of our organization.

In accordance with the membership vote that was concluded on March 2nd, 2017, IFT’s membership voted to approve a new membership model, and merge IFT’s Constitution and Bylaws. While the new bylaws are effective immediately, as was noted in the vote, the new membership model will become effective in September 2017. At that time, all membership category references will be updated online.

IFT Joint Membership Program

To help meet the needs of professionals working in today’s global food sector, IFT has developed joint membership programs with two other leading organizations in the food sector: the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) and the Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology (CIFST).
