This past year challenged our global food system more than ever before. With these challenges comes a greater need to stretch, dig deeper, problem solve, and ignite new and innovative solutions to bring our world better and more accessible food.”
      The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) annual event has been newly branded as FIRST - Food Improved by Research, Science & Technology. IFT has reimagined into a new, AI-enabled virtual event and expo experience.

      Virtual events are more convenient and of course safer in many respects, but perhaps more importantly, they produce a far smaller carbon footprint than live events. The event will still be chock full of food community innovations, like Victory Hemp Foods' breakthrough proteins and oils!

      This year FIRST is taking place from July 19 - 23 and you can see the schedule here.
