Nominations for each new roster are made by IAFoST Fellows and/or IUFoST Adhering Bodies.  The election is carried out among the Fellows of the Academy. Those elected by  IAFoST are acknowledged by their peers as outstanding representatives of international food science and technology.  

The International Academy of Food Science (IAFoST) collectively forms a diverse pool of scientific expertise in food science and technology and related disciplines from which IUFoST draws non-aligned expert advice on scientific matters.  Fellows serve as independent professional leaders who engage and endorse high standards of ethics and scientific endeavors. 


The International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) stimulates the ongoing exchange of knowledge in those scientific disciplines and technologies relating to the expansion, improvement, distribution and conservation of the world's food supply.  IUFoST is the sole Food Science and Technology disciplinary representative elected by its multi-disciplinary peers into the International Science Council (ISC) and works with related United Nations organizations such as WHO, FAO, UNDP and UNIDO. IUFoSTʼs Disciplinary and Special Interest Groupings include ISFE – International Society of Food Engineers, ISOPOW – Symposium on Properties of Water – ISNFF, International Society for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals – ISFANS, International Society of Food Applications of Nanoscale Science (ISFANS).  Website: Contact:
