Next we head to the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), which has appointed Mary Ellen Camire, Ph.D., professor of food science and nutrition at the University of Maine’s School of Food and Agriculture, as its 75th president.
An IFT member since 1986, Dr Camire’s research spans the fields of food technology and nutrition, including: how processing changes nutrients and antioxidants in foods; ingredients and processing techniques to make foods healthier and more satisfying; and assessing consumer reactions to new crops and aquaculture products.
Collin Dennis, Ph.D., is the new president-elect, and will follow Dr. Camire as the 2015-2016 president.
