Welcome to the San Joaquin Section of the Institute of Food Technologists

The San Joaquin Section IFT is one of 53 regional sections of the IFT organization, a non-profit scientific society with over 17,000 members. We also sponsor a fund-raising golf tournament held every Fall that helps to raise scholarship funds for CSU Fresno students in Food Science and related majors. Our members represent all areas of the food industry, from manufacturing to retail/consumer goods to research & development and beyond. With professionals in industry and academia, 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 the San Joaquin Section 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.

Anyone with an interest in the food industry is welcome to join!
