Interest Group (Divisions)

The Institute of Food Technologists recognizes the wide variety of disciplines, topics, and areas of expertise in the global science of food community. We offer 25 topical, interest-based groups, known as Divisions, that allow you to get more information, connections, and resources specialized to the topics that matter in your work today, or where you see your career going tomorrow.

Gain knowledge and collaborate with like-minded peers through Division-hosted webcasts, podcasts, and newsletters, online forums like IFT Connect, IFT’s online community, and in-person experiences at IFT FIRST: Annual Event and Expo.

With 25 topic-based groups spanning the science of food, there are plenty of opportunities to contribute, learn, or expand your network in the areas of food science that matter most to you.
