On top of your game

Would you like to discuss and find new ways to address challenging opportunities to create healthy, sustainable and affordable foods? Join us! We organise networking events and masterclasses. We also offer training sessions and in-depth workshops through Academy meetings. The topics are chosen by young professionals. In that way we make sure we stay on top of your game!

Development program

IFFI companies enable participation in an ‘in-industry’ management development program (instead of an in-company management program). An unique opportunity for young professionals to develop more broadly!

Here, internships, theses, excursions, small research projects, and entry-level jobs are matched with 3rd and 4th year BSc and MSc students from food-related studies.

On September 19, the Young IFFI event will take place, with the theme ‘Food for Thought’. Young professionals and students are invited to come together and address the contemporary, major issues in our industry. Photographer and filmmaker Kadir van Lohuizen will elaborate on these issues based on his eponymous VPRO series. In workshops, facilitated by moderators from Careerwise, solutions will be made clear interactively. Participation for young professionals and students is free.
