Advocacy Toolkits

Welcome to our scientific toolkits. Here you will find IFT content about specific, meaningful topics – ranging from date labeling to food traceability – that you can leverage to inform your personal networks. The science-backed information is meant to dispel common misconceptions around important topics and should be used as a thoughtful tool in promoting knowledge.

Date LabelingDate Labeling
Because date labeling terminology and use varies so extensively in the United States and other countries, there is considerable misunderstanding about what it means with regard to quality or safety of the food or beverage product. This misunderstanding leads to food waste—a substantial global issue—when products are unnecessarily discarded because they are thought to be unsuitable for consumption. This toolkit provides factual information to provide a better understanding, including shareable content to get the word out to your professional and personal networks.
