Since 1939, the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), Chicago, Illinois, has been a forum for passionate food science professionals and technologists where industry leaders can collaborate, learn and contribute. This event aims to inspire and transform collective scientific knowledge into innovative solutions for the benefit of all people around the world.

IFT FIRST 2022 is the leading annual food exhibition in the USA which returned this year to in-person format after COVID’s restrictions. IFT FIRST is a place where professionals can discover the latest global trends, newest innovations, and cutting-edge solutions while making strategic connections to advance their businesses and careers.

IFT’s annual event and expo have been reimagined into a unique in-person and virtual experience, which includes the return of the largest B2B food innovation expo.

IFT FIRST 2022 took place from 10 to 13 July 2022 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Over 700 exhibitors presented there to demonstrate, educate and sample the best in trending ingredients, machinery, food, and food science intelligence.

This year, Interstarch USA, Inc., the subsidiary of Interstarch GmbH, presented our products at IFT FIRST 2022 – native and modified starches, vital wheat gluten, and ingredients for Gluten-free products manufacture.

Due to participation in IFT FIRST 2022, our company has expanded its presence in new markets and gained new partnerships in the USA, Canada, Mexico, and other countries. In addition, this exhibition has once again become a perfect platform for communication and meetings with our existing partners.

For our team of managers and marketers, visiting events of this level is an excellent opportunity to acquaint ourselves with world trends in the food industry and, more importantly, to start cooperation with new overseas partners. Interstarch GmbH continues to strengthen its position as an international manufacturer and supplier of ingredients for food producers. We always look for new development opportunities by finding new markets and developing competitive assortment positions.

We are looking forward to meeting you next year at IFT FIRST 2023!
