As a food specialist awarding body and end-point assessment organisation the food and drink industry is at the heart of everything we do. Part of the ftc group, we’re a not-for-profit organisation which enables us to focus on doing the right thing, not driving the bottom line.
Though we’ve been developing accredited qualifications for almost 20 years our roots trace back to 1946, with the establishment of the Institute of Meat (IoM). The IoM remains a sister organisation and a valuable source of meat industry expertise to this day.
