Increasingly, IUFoST sees its role as that of providing services that implement the preceding objectives to its various constituencies, including its adhering bodies, international organizations, national governments, and individual food scientists. Currently, IUFoST pursues its objectives primarily through stimulation and sponsorship of international and regional congresses, conferences, short courses, and symposia.

In these activities IUFoST subscribes to the principles of ICSU, which promote the participation by all bona fide scientists without regard to race, religion, political philosophy, ethnic origin, citizenship, language, or sex.

The Union establishes such committees, commissions, and working parties as are required to cope with interna tional issues concerning the food supply. Its activities are coordinated to supplement the efforts of other similarly interested international scientific and technological groups. A number of these activities are carried out jointly with the International Union of Nutritional Sciences (IUNS), a closely related organization. It develops projects with the World Health Organization (WHO), and has official NonGovernmental Organization (NGO) status with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
