The International Academy of Food Science and Technology (IAFoST) is an elected group of distinguished food scientists, technologists and engineers who serve as Fellows of the Academy. IAFoST Fellows are distinguished by their scientific and professional contributions to food science and technology. They promote high standards of ethics and scientific endeavours among food scientists and technologists and serve as a source of scientific personnel and information to support international activities related to food science and technology through IUFoST. New Fellows are inducted during each World Food Congress.
Academy Fellows represent no organisation and serve as independent persons, forming a pool of scientific expertise from which IUFoST may draw non-aligned expert advice on scientific matters.
