How We Work

Member companies and associations drive most IOFI accomplishments. IOFI members send volunteers to work with the IOFI Secretariat staff of scientific, regulatory and communications professionals on committees and working groups. IOFI volunteers bring experience and expertise to work on varied projects in areas including science, safety, regulatory, communications, material specifications, sustainability and more.

IOFI committee members tackle a variety of tasks including in-depth research, planning, analysis of major issues confronting the flavor industry, drafting of peer-reviewed papers and the development of industry positions. The breadth of experience and teamwork in our committees supports IOFI’s success as a global representative for the flavor industry. The talent pool of people with cross-cultural perspectives enriches IOFI decision-making.
