When the International Union of Food Science and Technology was inaugurated 25 years ago at the Third International Congress of Food Science and Technology in Washington, its first President, George F. Stewart, committed the Union to serving mankind in an area of critical need-providing safe, stable, palatable and nutritious food.
The author, IUFoST Treasurer 1978-1987 and Vice-President 1987-1991, looks at three key issues discussed at the Third Congress to see what has become of this commitment : hunger in the world, chemical contamination of food, and food acceptance.
His reflections were presented as the Founders Lecture at the Ninth International Congress, Budapest, 30 July to 4 August, 1995.
