International Association for Food Protection

The International Association for Food Protection (IAFP), founded in 1911, is a non-profit association of food safety professionals based in Des Moines, Iowa. The organization claims a membership of over 3,000 members from 50 nations. The mission of the IAFP is to provide food safety professionals worldwide with a forum to exchange information on protecting the food supply.

The association provides its members with an information network on scientific, technical, and practical developments in food safety and sanitation through its two scientific journals, ''Food Protection Trends'' and ''Journal of Food Protection'', its educational annual meeting, and interaction with other food safety professionals.

Before 2000, it was known as the International Association of Dairy and Milk Inspectors (1911–1936), International Association of Milk Sanitarians (1936–1947), and International Association of Milk and Food Sanitarians, Inc. The name was changed in 1966 to the International Association of Milk, Food and Environmental Sanitarians. In 1999, it received the current name. Provided by Wikipedia
