Do you want to learn about the most exciting industry in the world? You & your students consume our products many times a day! Get an understanding of behind the scenes for what gets on the shelf of the grocery store.
The IFT (professional organization for the food industry) has a meeting each year to debut new technologies, research, products and trends.  1,200+ companies and 20,0000 industry professionals will all be in Chicago this July!
Come join us this year and meet with industry professionals, learn about the science behind food, tour the expo floor, visit booths and taste innovative products, see careers in action, connect
