Adhering Bodies

IUFoST is the global scientific organisation for food science and technology, representing over 300,000 members from more than 75 countries.

Membership in the International Union of Food Science and Technology is open to all nations on the basis of one representative body from each nation or defined territory.

Application for Adhering Body status

The member body of each national representative of IUFoST represents the food scientists and technologists of that country. These Adhering Bodies or constituent bodies thereof send delegates to the General Assembly to make IUFoST policy. Members of these national organizations also serve on IUFoST Committees and collaborate on numerous food science related projects. Adhering Bodies’ regional symposia, workshops and short courses are supported by IUFoST.
