IFT Takes Inclusion to a Whole New Level at IFT19

Institute of Food Technologists (IFT)

I always look forward to attending the IFT Annual Event and Food Expo, and I especially love when it takes place in New Orleans. Being a food town, it’s always fun to convene there with my fellow food scientists and take in all that IFT has to offer, as well as the local flavor. Plus, I have family in the area which makes the trip that much more enjoyable.

Institute of Food Technologists (IFT)

In the time that’s passed, many manufacturers have started implementing the changes, while others are still in the process. With the January 2020 compliance date for most manufacturers quickly approaching, the new version of the label is appearing on more food and beverage products every day.

WashU Expert: First Native American U.S. poet laureate will inspire the nation

Washington University in St. Louis

Joy Harjo, a member of the Muscogee Creek Nation, has been selected as the 23rd U.S. poet laureate, a move that will inspire Native American people throughout the country, says Kellie Thompson, director of the Kathryn M. Buder Center for American Indian Studies at Washington University in St. Louis.“Her selection will inspire us in expected ways — maybe to become poets and artists — but also in unexpected ways, like speaking our truth in spaces where it typically has not been heard, as Native American people and as women,” said Thompson, a member of the Seneca Nation of Indians.
