Corporate supporters

We are unique. We are an independent body dedicated to maintaining high standards within the food and drink sector.

Our Corporate Supporters recognise the important work that we do and provide support to allow us to continue our work in advancing the profession.


Why not become an IFST Corporate Supporter?

IFST is the leading professional body for food scientists and technologists. As a registered charity it is independent of government, industry and special interest or lobby groups. As such we are actively involved in a number of high-profile projects in support of food professionals and the wider food science and technology agenda.

Current projects include:

  • Register of Food Safety Professionals – a specialist professional register to recognise and encourage the professional development of food safety professionals
  • MyCPD – an online CPD system to record and manage professional development
  • Student Career LaunchPads – a highly energising and enlightening one-day event for undergraduate students to better understand the career options available to them when they complete their studies
  • Ecotrophelia – a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style new product development competition run jointly with Campden BRI as the UK heats leading to an EU final. Our corporate supporters recognise the important work that IFST does and provide much needed financial support that allows us to continue our work in advancing the profession.

In return, as a corporate supporter, your organisation will receive year-round recognition on our corporate supporters’ website page as well as free places at all of our key events and recognition at these events.

IFST Independence

IFST is grateful for the sponsorship of our Corporate Supporters  To maintain our independence, IFST welcomes corporate supporters across multiple organisations on a non-exclusive basis and represents a wide scope of the food sector.   We limit the value of sponsorship from any single Corporate Supporter and the acceptance of sponsorship does not influence our decisions or affect the independence of our outputs. Our finances are published in our publicly accessible annual report.
