Chicago, IL -- Pam Coleman, president of Biofortis, a Merieux NutriSciences Company, has been appointed to the 2014/2015 International Food Science Certification Commission (IFSCC). The IFSCC is an independent, third-party certification body that oversees the testing, governance, and policymaking for the Certified Food Scientist (CFS) credentialing activities.

The Institute of Food Technologists debuted the CFS credential in 2013 to recognize the applied scientific knowledge and skills of food scientists. The IFSCC ensures the autonomy of the CFS program and provides appropriate oversight of the certification process.
 
Coleman was appointed to the IFSCC due to her years of industry experience, most notably with Silliker and Biofortis, as well as her active participation in the food science community.

“I wholeheartedly support the CFS program for the value it brings to our scientists,” Coleman said. “The emphasis on personal certification and continuing education will pay dividends for our research organization.”

The CFS program now has nearly 1,600 certificants in 866 organizations from 55 countries around the world. These include ingredient and consumer package goods companies, universities, consultancies, government agencies, and many more. XX has XX certified food scientists on staff.

In order to obtain a CFS, a candidate must meet the eligibility requirements and take an exam. The program itself complements both academic and work experience, and ultimately, helps demonstrate the profession’s commitment to safe, nutritious and plentiful food for consumers.
