The South East Branch organises a number of technical visits and holds meetings/joint meetings that allow topical discussion throughout the year.
Message from the Chair
This year we have our usual mix of factory visits, scientific meetings on topical subjects and the odd social event but we are focusing on trying to involve more of the students in educational establishments in the south east. We are planning to hold a series of special events at time when our members are likely to be free.

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to you on becoming a member of the IFST. You should by now have been registered to the South East region of England and as such we would like to introduce you, in particular, to the South East branch of IFST whose activities are led by our immensely dedicated and pro-active volunteer steering committee.
The collective knowledge, professional expertise and enthusiasm of our committee members, ranging from talented students to retired food scientists with a long, distinguished career in the food industry, is unparalleled. We thrive on enhancing our members’ knowledge and assisting them with continuing professional development through organising technical excursions, networking events and lectures on topical industry subjects.
Over the years we have developed strong links, both home and abroad, with a number of organisations with whom we share professional interests. We also work extensively with educational establishments in our region to promote food sciences and the work of the IFST amongst students.
Please visit our branch's pages. There, on log in, you can view reports and pictures from our past activities and the listing of our forthcoming events.
If you would like to get involved in our committee (and should you choose to you will very quickly see what a welcoming, fun and foodie team we are) do get in touch on email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you soon.
