IFT encourages you to become an advocate for food science and technology.
As a scientific society, IFT is dedicated to educating our members, the public and the public policy community on the important role of the science of food. As a nonprofit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization, IFT abides by restrictions on the extent to which it may attempt to influence legislation. IFT consistently addresses food-related issues to ensure that science serves as the foundation for sound public policy development.
