AIFST 2022 Director  Applications


Formed in 1967, The Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) represents food system professionals working in all facets of the food industry: food science, food technology, engineering, sensory, new product development, innovation, regulatory, QA, nutrition, microbiology and food safety, as well as those in leadership positions within the academic, industry and private sectors. 

The organisation is focused on the strategic priorities of grow, learn, connect and champion:

       Grow – personal development, growing the next generation of food scientists and technologists and growing the Institute.

       Learn – about the industry, about advances in science and technology, about other sectors, about things you don’t know or need to know. 

       Connect – connecting members with members, members with industry, industry with industry, to meet like minded people.

       Champion – a voice for food science and food scientists within industry, academia, grow respect for the industry and the profession.

AIFST Board Composition 

The AIFST Board is a skills-based board currently comprising 7 non-executive directors. Appointments are for a period of three years, with retiring Directors able to nominate for re-election and serve a maximum of two terms. Accordingly, there is a need for the recruitment of two Directors in 2022.

A director is not required to be an AIFST member to qualify for appointment, but at least five directors must be full voting members (Professional or Fellow) of the company at all times. For the 2022 Board election, both Directors elected at the 2022 AGM are required to be a member of AIFST.

Further information about the AIFST is available our website.
