"In my role at Campden BRI, I meet and work with clients internationally, so having the opportunity to subscribe to a joint membership of both IFST and IFT is really helpful to me.  Both organisations share common goals in terms of encouraging food professionals to share and develop their knowledge but their different perspectives – from the UK and the EU versus the US means that I benefit from a broader range of ideas and views. It also opens up both communities of Food Scientists to network with.   I was already involved in supporting IFST’s work, especially encouraging young talent to join the food sector – I now have the opportunity to combine this with Campden BRI’s links in the US to help facilitate connections globally." Bertrand Emond, Joint IFST/IFT member
