Our aim is the advancement of food science and technology based on impartial science and knowledge sharing.
We are working to do more to challenge and develop the sector. We work alongside our partners, industry, academia, and policy makers to guarantee that food science and technology works for the benefit, safety and health of everyone.
Disseminating credible science
We are scientists; we have a key role to play in putting forward credible science and, yes, that sometimes means taking a stand to rebut inaccurate or misleading claims.
Influencing the policy agenda
We are scientists; not lobbyists. But we do publish evidence-based statements about policy and robust science on anything and everything that relates to the food sector and the development of the profession.
We know we don’t have all the answers. We are always open to working with new partners and finding new ways of achieving our aims.
