The South Eastern Section of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) is one of regional sections of the IFT, a non-profit community of over 20,000 food industry professionals. Our section was founded in 1950 and the territory of our section includes Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina and Tennessee. Our members represent all areas of the food industry, from manufacturing to retail/consumer goods to research & development as well as academics and beyond. With professionals in both industry and academia, we strive to promote all aspects of food technology for the benefit of our members.
IFT has been advancing the science of food and its application across the global food system by creating a dynamic forum where individuals from more than 90 countries can collaborate, learn, and grow, transforming scientific knowledge into innovative solutions for the benefit of people around the world. And our section takes pride in our rich history of supporting IFT’s vision and mission. To learn more about IFT and to get involved, click HERE.
