Message from The President of Malaysian Institute of Food Technology (MIFT)
Established in 1974, the Malaysian Institute of Food Technology (MIFT) is a non-profit professional body of food technologists and educators in the field of food science and technology, as well as other individuals involved in areas of work closely related to food technology. Our objectives are to provide a medium for exchange, discussion, publication and dissemination on various aspects of food technology; to stimulate scientific and technological research in related fields; and to promote the profession of food technology through raising educational standards, promoting the scientific approach to food and increasing public awareness of the basic role of food technologists. All these objectives work towards the ultimate goal of promoting the application of science and technology to the improved production, processing, packaging, distribution, evaluation and utilization of food in order to provide better and more adequate foods for mankind.
MIFT is pleased to support Marshall Cavendish (M) Sdn Bhd in launching the latest edition of Malaysia Food Business Directory 2018/2019. Published by one of the leading business information firms in the region, this directory provides a comprehensive and up-to-date compilation of a wide range of food and beverage-related offerings, presented in both print and digital alternatives (www.foodbizmalaysia.com).
More than 10 years and going strong, this directory has proven itself as a valuable guide to understanding the landscape of the Malaysian food, beverage and supporting industries. We hope information in this directory can facilitate better decision making and enable readers to find what they need. Before concluding this message, I would like to congratulate the publisher for the job well done and may this directory continue to enjoy great success in many years to come.
Thank you and best wishes from all of us at MIFT.
