The European Flavour Association (EFFA) has announced an event entitled 'Brussels Flavour Day', to be held on 20th Jun 2017 in Brussels.

The theme will be 'The role of flavourings in our food’s future' and, according to EFFA...

"For the first time, the national, European and global levels are working together in a big event to highlight the important role of flavourings in the challenges and opportunities of the future. We will explore how they can meet consumer’s expectations and policy maker’s goals at the same time, by offering products that are at the same time responsible and delicious"

This will be the first in a series of events about flavourings in Europe, including London (21st Sept – Centenary gala), Paris (16th Nov - 'Flavourings: unravel the true from the false'), & Berlin.

More information is available from the EFFA newsroom.

Dear Members,

At the Extraordinary General Meeting held on 7th December 2016 (minutes available here), a number of amendments to The Society's constitution were discussed and agreed upon. We have now updated our online version to reflect these changes.

The Officers and the Council would like to thank all who participated in the discussions to bring our Society forward.

BSF Council Officers

At the recent council meeting it was decided that the automatic small annual increase in subscription levels provided for in our constitution was to be waved for the 2017 subscriptions cycle.

Mike and Bonnie Tyrrell have stepped down from the Council having been involved in all aspects of the Society for a number of years.

We, the Officers, Ordinary members of Council and the members of the British Society of Flavourists would like to extend our thanks to Mike and Bonnie who have worked tirelessly to promote the BSF and for all the hard work they have put in over many, many years.
