Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who understands what you’re going through or bounce an idea off a neutral party. That’s why connecting with local peers and people working in similar environments or disciplines is essential for career success. When you join the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), you gain access to our expansive community of science of food professionals.
