About Longhorn IFT

Welcome to the Longhorn Section of IFT!


We are a nonprofit networking and educational organization. As part of the Institute of Food Technologists, we have built a community of food professionals from across the globe who come together to advance the science and industry of food.


Our members network and develop both personal and business relationships. We also work to support students and new professionals in our area who are beginning their careers in food science. Whether it's at a barbeque or one of our other fun events, at our annual or Suppliers Night Expo, or maybe a educational lecture featuring
an industry speaker... we look forward to having you with us!


So feel free to join us at any of our events, or become a member by clicking: JOIN IFT
