Food Science and Technology


Dear Canadian colleague,

Remember how proud we were as Canadians to welcome the world to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics? We came together as a nation and showed the world what a great country Canada is.

Well, we’re getting the opportunity to express that pride once again as the Canadian food science and technology industry welcomes the world to Montreal in 2014 for the 17th IUFoST World Congress!

We are very pleased to announce that Canada won an extremely competitive bid process to host this global Congress.
