Partnership Opportunities

IFIS is interested in partnering with Associations on initiatives to provide and share scientifically evidence-based knowledge. We are able to work quickly with associations in the sciences of food and health, to develop tools, products and services to help your members discover the high-quality, trustworthy science they need for their research.

We are able to offer a range of partnership options to associations that are cost effective and benefit both parties, whilst ensuring that you provide your members with tangible member benefits designed to increase engagement, drive up numbers by attracting new members and provide your members with an extra member benefit they can use every day!

IFIS is an educational charity set up by food-related trade associations from the US and Europe. Its objectives are “the advancement of public education and vocational training in the field of food science, food technology and human nutrition”.

In the 54 years since it was founded, IFIS has established a reputation around the world for trustworthy, authoritative content. Over 500 institutions use the FSTA® – Food Science and Technology Abstracts. 8 out of the world’s top 10 food science universities use FSTA (AWRU Ranking 2021) and FSTA is used by 7 of the world’s top 10 food and non-alcoholic beverage manufacturers.

Our new IFIS Collections product enables us to create custom collections based on FSTA, targeted to specific industry sectors and topics. Find out more about our recent partnership with The Nutrition Society here.

  • Increase membership numbers & generate additional revenues
  • Work together to create new databases of high quality content
  • Provide opportunities for members to join editorial boards, to advise on the curation of content
