We're pleased to finally reveal a new refreshed look for IFST in time for our Jubilee year.

Our project to refresh our brand image, including our logo, has involved  considerable consultation over the last 12 months with a wide range of our members and stakeholders throughout the process. 

We hope you like the crisp, professional look of the new logo and the other supporting designs and elements. Read more about our new look.
