Eastern Branch goes from strength to strength

If you are based in the East or on the fringes, with events planned across the region in 2017, The Eastern Branch has something for everybody.

If you have never been to an event before, why not come along and take advantage of the hospitality and gain an insight into what is happening in the Food Sector in your area. One advance event for your diary is the Ely Science Festival being held at the spectacular Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire. There is an opportunity to support this event during May next year, more details to follow.

Other events planned include a visit to the National Collection of Yeast Cultures in February at the IFR (Norwich) and a joint meeting in March with the South East branch at the 3M Customer Innovation Centre, where you can take a navigated tour of the live exhibition environment and visit the Corporate Analytical Services Laboratory, which are both housed within the 3M Bracknell Head Office.

Other events in the pipeline include visits to local production facilities, a large multi-national research centre, a mini symposium with expert talks and a spring/summer social event. Keep an eye on the Eastern section of the IFST website for more details ifst-eastern-branch
