Equal opportunities

  1. Statement of Intent
    The Institute of Food Science & Technology (IFST) is committed to the principles of equal opportunities and eliminating discrimination in every aspect of its work. We work to ensure that no individual or group is treated more or less favourably than others on grounds of ethnic origin, nationality, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race or religion. We work to comply completely with all the legislation related to equal opportunities to ensure that the culture, philosophy and processes within IFST are free from bias of any kind.
  2. Main Principles
    We work to manage all IFST activities in a way that is completely free from bias. All IFST staff and members involved in any of the Institute's activities, are required to follow this policy and its practical implications. We do not tolerate acts of unlawful discrimination and all complaints or incidents of such alleged behaviour that are within our remit are treated with necessary confidentiality, investigated and appropriate action taken.
  3. Review
    The implementation of the policy is reviewed as necessary and the whole policy reviewed every three years. If you have any concerns about this policy, please contact the Chief Executive.
