Vision: IFAMA will be a catalyst and clearinghouse for ideas and talent, and research agenda setter that drives the global food and agribusiness system to respond in an innovative, effective, and rapid way to the changing needs of the world.


IFAMA was formed to stimulate strategic thinking across the full spectrum of the global food system.

IFAMA is volunteer driven and provides the following ongoing opportunities: IFAMA Chapters, meet throughout the year to discuss food and agribusiness issues important to their particular local cities, regions, countries or hemisphere. Chapters are currently active in the United States Mid-West Region, Africa, and Europe (IFAMA Europe).

Through its conference programs, publications and ongoing initiatives, IFAMA provides opportunities for professional development for even the most experienced members.
