At the IFT Food Expo, you'll find the industry's largest collection of food ingredients, equipment, processing, and packaging suppliers, all under one roof. It's the only place where the latest global food trends, and the products designed to address them, are on display.
For professionals involved in food science and technology, the IFT Food Expo is the single most important trade show of the year. That’s why two out of every three people who attend the Food Expo are repeat attendees. They know from personal experience that it’s THE best place to see, touch, taste, and experience the newest products, the latest trends, the hottest tools, and most cutting-edge techniques…and meet face-to-face with the companies that provide them.
Each year, the IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo brings together professionals involved in both the science and the business of food - experts in R&D, product development, and QA/QC, as well as executive management, marketing, procurement, sales, and more - from industry, academia, and government.
In just a few days, attendees gain practical insights, make professional contacts, and discover innovative ideas that they will apply when they return from the event.
