The European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST) pushes the production of sustainable and healthy food by facilitating knowledge exchange. As a non-profit organization we support the further development of the field of food science and technology. We enable food scientists and technologists, businesses in food and food-related areas and European policymakers to deploy new technologies and developments to their advantage.
More than 130 societies, institutes and universities all over Europe are affiliated to EFFoST. EFFoST is the European group of the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST), which in turn is a full member of the International Council for Science (ICSU).
Every year we organize the prestigious EFFoST International Conference, an important scientific event that brings together world-renowned researchers, policy makers, professionals and students from multidisciplinary food-related fields.
Food Science and Technology Challenges for the 21st Century - Research to Progress Society
EFFoST participates in many food related EU projects and is responsible for knowledge dissemination. Within EU projects we work closely with member societies and organisations.
We are involved in publishing several scientific journals as well as the series EFFoST Critical Reviews. For food related SME’s we publish the online magazine Taste of Science.
Our student award encourages next generation food scientists. Our other awards give recognition to the invaluable contribution of individuals or organisations to food science and technology.
