Welcome to the Lake Erie Section of the Institute of Food Technologists

Lake Erie IFT is one of 53 regional sections of the IFT organization, a non-profit scientific society with 17,000 members. Our members represent all areas of the food industry, from packaging to manufacturing to research & development and beyond. With professionals in industry, academia and government, we strive to promote all aspects of food technology.

Whether you are a new student or a seasoned professional, you will benefit from being a member of Lake Erie IFT. Meetings occur several times throughout the year (check out the Events page) for fun and informative evenings with outstanding speakers and tours. These events provide you with the opportunity to network, be active in your local area and enjoy gourmet cuisine.
