IFST and IFT have partnered and are launching a pilot program that will give food science and technology professionals joint membership of IFST and IFT.

IFST and IFT partnership

For a single membership fee, you’ll become a member of both organisations and have access to expanded member benefits, from both organisations, that you can use to help you stay current on the latest developments and innovations in the science of food. Here are some of the resources available to you through this offer:

IFST Member Benefits

Existing IFT members

This offer is available to IFT members* for only £80, plus the relevant IFST subscription rate.

“In a world where food science and scientists are asked to meet global challenges, challenges which require local understanding to be met successfully, the opportunity for connecting with thought-leaders and peers is invaluable. Membership of the Institute of Food Technologists provides IFST members unique access to information, insights and experience from North America and around the world, and the opportunity to exchange views both face-to-face and virtually.”   Ailbhe Fallon, Chairman British Section IFT
