A big THANK YOU to IFT President Colin Dennis and Membership Director, Tom Foley, for travelling many miles to spend time with us in January and presenting to the Alamo section the strategic vision for IFT for the next year and beyond.  What a unique opportunity to hear from IFT leadership and learn first-hand the direction of the association for which we belong.  Please feel free to view the presentation that Colin gave to the section provided here.

As we direct our attention to the next Lunch-N-Learn presentation for February, we hope you will be able to join us at Texas Food Solutions (Katy, TX) to hear from the expert on what is required for company’s implementing FSMA this year.  We are pleased to have Dr. Gary Acuff  join us to provide insight into the Food Safety Modernization Act and the implications therein.  Also for those that are interested and able to make it before the presentation, Texas Food Solutions (), the first company in Houston, TX providing commercial High Pressure Processing will be giving a tour of their facilities beginning at 10:45am Feb. 25th.  For those that cannot make it to Houston and would like to hear the presentation, you may call in at 11:45 at: (712) 432-1500 Participant Access Code: 139001# (please place your phone on mute during the presentation).  Also be sure and register early, so we may have a firm count and know how many to expect for lunch. REGISTER NOW.

Lastly Members, please be on the lookout for an email from IFT, with our 2016/2017 Alamo IFT officers election ballot.  If you would like to volunteer or participate in some way with Alamo IFT, there are still positions available, please notify me or another officer for further details.  Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you in Houston.
