EFFoST History

The formation of a European group for food science and technology was first proposed by the late prof. John Coppock, IFST President 1978-1979. The idea was to form a European association under the umbrella of IUFoST with additional objectives and activities. Specifically, the intention was to forge closer links between ‘rank and file’ scientists and technologists in Europe through their national organisations. The first EFFoST General Assembly was held during the first EFFoST European Conference ‘Cereals in the European Context’ in July 1986.
