Reconnecting with IFST’s North of England Branch

The North of England region is a diverse, vibrant network of members, connected by geography, a passion for food and drink and a love of science! The counties in the North of England have for many years provided food science education and training at the many esteemed centres of learning as well as employment and career development within the food production businesses right across the region.

A handful of members have already expressed an interest in establishing a vibrant network for the support and guidance of any member, in education or industry across the region, by getting the North of England Branch up and running again. We are particularly looking to focus on three areas to begin with - North East, North West and Yorkshire – and would like to hear from members who are interested in helping out in these areas even by just suggesting ideas for ways in which the North of England Branch could be useful to you in your current role.

For more information, please contact Erin Taylor at Please state which area you would be interested in finding out more about.
