IFST's prizes and awards programme is designed to recognise and celebrate the outstanding work/achievement of a group or individual throughout the food science community. 

Emerging Leaders Network

We are delighted to announce that we are continuing our participation with our close partner, IFT, in their very exciting international leadership development programme, formerly known as Lead 360 and now renamed the Emerging Leaders' Network. We are looking to hear from our most promising future food leaders – one of you will be selected to represent IFST and participate in an amazing four day programme of activities.

IFST Ambassador

We are looking to build a network of Ambassadors to help IFST in our mission to promote ‘the voice of the food profession’ by 'sharing knowledge, being independent, promoting professional development and encouraging new entrants to the sector as an exciting, worthwhile and aspirational career path'.

The competition is now closed.

Impact Award

We do many great things as an Institute but many of them wouldn't be possible without our volunteers. The Impact Award was introduced in 2017 to showcase activities/innovations organised by our Regional Branches and Subject Interest Groups and highlight where they had made an impact in IFST’s strategic priorities.
