IFAC MEMBERSHIP

The International Food Additives Council (IFAC) is a global association representing manufacturers of food ingredients, including food additives. IFAC combines scientific, regulatory, and communications activities to support the food ingredient industry, and the majority of IFAC’s work is done through three committee programs. IFAC is based in the U.S. but has a truly global footprint to support its members.

IFAC membership is open to any company or organization that produces or is engaged in the operations associated with producing or using food ingredients. Following are brief descriptions of IFAC’s membership categories.
