Recognition of Food Science and Technology Programmes

Congratulations to the Faculty of Food Engineering (FEA), University of Campinas, Brazil, on the recent IUFoST recognition of its B.Sc. Food Engineering degree. The programme, facilities and reputation of FEA have been determined by the IUFoST Education Committee to be of the highest level, the opportunities for students are globally competitive and the FEA provides an outstanding example of leadership, scientific expertise and teaching ability.

IUFoST has significant expertise in responding to requests for assistance in relation to food science and technology curricula. It collaborated with scientists from many fields from around the world to develop this approval process for food science and technology curricula, which is already established and growing as institutions apply for international recognition of their programmes and facilities through IUFoST.

Institutions receiving the IUFoST Food Science and Technology programme recognition meet stringent outcome-based requirements. IUFoST reviews teaching programmes and related facilities and the process includes a site visit as a basic requirement for programme approval. For further information, please contact the IUFoST Secretariat.

IUFoST Scientific Information Bulletin (SIB)



John Spink, PhD
Food Fraud – and the focus on prevention – is an important and evolving food industry focus. Even though the vast majority of these incidents do not have a health hazard in some ways they are more dangerous because the substances and actions are unknown and untraceable.  The types of food fraud stretch the traditional role of food science and technology to include criminology, supply chain traceability and other control systems. The food authenticity and integrity testing will be the most complex actions and their value should be assessed in terms of the contribution to prevention. This Scientific Information Bulletin (SIB) presents an introduction, review of incidents, the fundamentals of prevention which then provide insight on the optimal role of Food Science and Technology.
See IUFoST SIBS below for the complete Food Fraud Prevention Scientific Information Bulletin.
