“My Personal Reflections of Dr. Borlaug’s Work and It’s Global Impact”
- International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST)
The International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) is the global federation of national scientific organizations representing more than 300,000 food scientists and technologists from over 75 countries. IUFoST has five regional groupings: ALACCTA representing Central and South America, EFFoST representing Europe, FIFSTA representing the ASEAN region, MENAFoST representing the Middle East and North Africa, and WAAFoST representing West Africa. IUFoST links the world's food scientists and technologists in strengthening global food science and technology for humanity. Website: www.iufost.org, Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The 17th Congress of IUFoST is ending this week in Montreal. The next one in 2016 will be in Dublin Ireland, so please start getting ready for it. From 2010 in South Africa (Capetown), to 2012 in Brazil (Iguacu) to now in Canada, I have seen the number of young scientists increase and African Food Scientists including students studying overseas increase. It has been very encouraging and a very successful Congress thanks to IUFoST secretariat Governing Council, and most importantly our gracious Canadian hosts.
