The 2023 IFT FIRST Theme

Innovation in a Time of Crisis: Can We Future-Proof the Food System?

Pandemics. Natural disasters. Inflation. War. Science Distrust. Global crises have impeded progress across the science of food community at a time when new solutions are most needed. From supply chain slowdowns and cost-savings imperatives to ever-more-complex research demands, these challenges force us to pivot in ways we never thought possible—and they demand we come together to forge innovative solutions.

IFT FIRST is where bold ideas, cutting-edge research, and a spirit of collaboration connect global food system communities. The best and brightest academics, researchers, and innovators in the science of food will be there. Together, we can future-proof the food system.
