IFT Food Expo 2022

July 10 - July 13

That moment you hear an insight or see a new ingredient that sparks a whole new product idea. Or when you hear groundbreaking research that inspires you to re-envision the way you sustainably package food. Or when you meet someone who will change the way you see your work forever.

These moments are what IFT FIRST:  Annual Event and Expo is all about.

IFT FIRST which means food improved by research, science and technology, is the only place you can get what you need to advance your knowledge, network, business, and push the future of food forward. Because when we all work together as one, we bring the world better food.

IFT FIRST returns July 10-13 with a brand-new in-person and virtual experience. Plus, the largest business-to-business food expo will be back – live from Chicago. Registration opens on March 1. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss your chance to RENEW, RECONNECT and TRANSFORM at IFT FIRST.
