IFT sections offer a great way to network with other food science and technology professionals. Each section is an extension of IFT that boasts a unique flavor catering to the professional fields represented in a geographic region.
There are a variety of opportunities to make an impact, whether you’re interested in a one time, short-term, or a longer-term commitment. Talk to any of your current section leaders about your interest in volunteering. For more information, please contact: email@example.com.
