Welcome to the Nutmeg Section of the Institute of Food Technologists

You have reached the website of the Connecticut regional section of the Institute of Food Technologists. As an organization with 45 years of glorious history, we stand with our heads up in promoting the ideals of professionalism and versatility of food scientists worldwide, and that of the United States in particular. This is a great platform for all people who like food, including its science, technology, innovation, future and politics. This is where the young blood and the experienced meet, and the decisions for the future are made with clarity. In the previous year, our section was recognized as one of the Sections of Merit by the National IFT. This year, we are glad to inform that ours has become a Section of Excellence. This is because we work together for the ideals and objectives of IFT in the State of Connecticut and have been successful in promoting and expanding it.

We propose new opportunities for our members starting with working with us in the unit, to the endless, interesting, and encouraging horizons for personal development. In that process we promote the ideals of our larger community, the National IFT, the foundations of food science and technology, networking opportunities, and conducting meetings and conferences where we meet great people who would inspire us for a greater tomorrow.

For students of food science, this is a great platform for professional development, service opportunities, and to join an annual Student Awards night. We distribute awards to students with excellent future and meritorious record, majoring in or associated with food science. Please contact us for details, or visit the Students’ page of this website.

On behalf of the Executive Committee of the Nutmeg IFT, we welcome each one of you to join our group and grow with us.


Congratulations Nutmeg IFT members on making the Nutmeg Section an IFT Section of excellence!
