Membership of the British Society of Flavourists is open to individuals working in the global Flavour Industry as well as those engaged in flavour research.

Members are elected to The Society at the discretion of the Council. Applicants are required to seek nomination from one or more existing members (number depending on grade applied for), who act as sponsor(s) for the application.

Please note that membership of the British Society of Flavourists is accepted and held solely on a personal basis, and is not linked to a member's employer. This is important when it comes to matters of annual subscriptions - members may choose to have theirs paid directly by their employer, but ultimately membership details are a matter between the Member & The Society only.

To apply for membership please first review the various grades of membership available. Applications will be considered by the Council at their next regular meeting, and you will receive notification shortly after.

If you are already a member and believe you are now eligible for a higher grade, please use the Apply for Upgrade form (login required).
