FIA has launched a new Associate Members category, in addition to its existing Premium and Full Members categories.

Membership to this new category is by invitation only, and is open to a range of companies and groups that have an interest in the food industry – from national and local food industry associations to consulting firms and technology providers that provide services to the food industry.

Associate members will be granted topical access to FIA’s online tools and resources such as the Country Tracker and Research Library. They will also receive special news alerts and bulletins updating them on the current or emerging issues in a particular country, as well as discounted special reports and publications.

FIA Executive Director, Bev Postma highlights the value and expertise that associate members will bring to the organisation.

“We are pleased to be able to respond to the needs of a wider range of companies. The broad spectrum of skills and experiences of these partners in the various sectors of the value chain has already proved valuable in helping FIA develop a vision on food safety, regional trade and responsible promotion of balanced diets and lifestyles.

“We are pleased to find a way to accommodate these companies into our broader network and I look forward to the additional knowledge and expertise that our associate members will bring,” she said.
