The Institute of Food Science & Technology (IFST) has appointed Sophia Griffiths as its new media and communications coordinator.

Griffiths was previously digital content editor at the IFST, having joined the firm as an intern in 2011.

Before joining the IFST, she completed a BSc in biology at Roanoke College in the US and an MA in science communications at the University of Leeds.

Griffiths said: ​[I aim] to increase the profile and exposure of the Institute, as well as food science and technology in general, and to provide support through communications both internally to its members and to wider external audiences.”

IFST’s top three priorities

Meanwhile, earlier this year, the IFST’s president Professor Margaret Paterson set out her top three priorities​ for her two-year term, in an exclusive video for FoodManufacture.co.uk.

She was talking having just been sworn into the role at the IFST’s spring conference in Norwich.

Speaking at the same event, Professor Ian Crute, chief scientist of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board, warned that dumbing down messages​ about food sustainability risked confusing the public and impairing the debate.
