Flyer of SNFS


SNFS publishes unbiased comments on current controversial findings in nutrition and food science (see Comments), hosts international congresses, workshops, seminars and symposia (see Activities), publishes an international, peer-reviewed, open-access scientific journal, the NFS Journal, and provides an information platform with this website.

Target group

SNFS membership is open to all persons who share an interest in nutrition and food science, including academic and corporate scientists and leaders, politicians and authority employees, as well as interested laypersons (see Membership).

Cooperation partners

Cooperation partners of SNFS are scientists, scientific institutions, associations and companies from the field of nutrition and food science and related disciplines, stakeholders, political institutions as well as media representatives.


SNFS is an independent scientific society and at the same time - like all organisations - dependent on financial support. This is where the SNFS sponsoring association comes in. It supports the scientific society and its aims - interdisciplinary networking, research in the field of nutrition and food science as well as objective communication on nutrition and food science topics. The sponsoring association aims to strengthen SNFS financially and to contribute proposals on issues to be investigated via the advisory board of the society. However, no influence is exerted on the course, results or interpretation of research and studies in order to guarantee the scientific independence of SNFS.

The purpose of the sponsoring association (see bylaws) is the promotion of science and research, in particular the scientific advancement and dissemination of information in the field of nutrition and food science, by financial support of SNFS.

Any person or organization wishing to support SNFS and its work may become a member of the sponsoring association. Membership is open to all natural persons, legal entities and associations of persons.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the sponsoring association to support the scientific neutrality and independent work of SNFS, please contact foerderverein@snfs.org.
