2017 Convention Volunteer applications now closed! 

This is a fantastic opportunity to be involved with AIFST’s 50-year celebrations and The Future of Food.

Volunteering for the Institute gives you a chance to be a part of the Convention and to network with industry professionals.

Being involved in the 49th AIFST Convention at the Brisbane Convention Centre was a great experience in which I was able to meet both fellow food science students as well as research and industry representatives.

This event provided an excellent opportunity for me to network with fellow young professionals and take part in social activities and industry relevant workshops organised through the AIFST. I was particularly interested in hearing a presentation by the CEO of Preshafruit on the commercialisation of high-pressure processing for improved fruit drinks in Australia.

Finally, the staff at AIFST offered a great opportunity to enjoy the volunteering experience and encouraged us to actively participate in discussions within the event and I would highly recommend others to join for the 50th AIFST Convention in Sydney.” -
