MIFT PRODUCT INNOVATION AWARD 2015
The Malaysian Institute of Food Technology (MIFT), a professional organisation consisting of food scientists and technologists was officially registered in 1974. The primary objective of MIFT is to promote the advancement of food science and technology for the benefit of our society and country.
Towards achieving our objective, MIFT initiated its “BEST PRODUCT AWARD” in 1983.
This award has been renamed the MIFT PRODUCT INNOVATION AWARD and is now more prestigious as
· the Ministry of Health Malaysia has allowed the winners to incorporate the award logo onto the product label
· the Platinum Award winner will be able to showcase and gain further recognition at the 14th ASEAN Food Conference in Philippines,
(24-26 June 2015 )
Entries for the Award are open to all Malaysian food processors, manufacturers and entrepreneurs. The rules and conditions of entry are stated in this brochure.
The Award by itself is to recognise and honour our local food processors and manufacturers for their efforts towards producing outstanding food products. It is our intention and aspiration that the Award serves as an incentive for our local food processors, manufacturers and entrepreneurs to innovate and introduce new food products and to reward their contributions to the development of food science and technology, not only in the country but in the region.
Please submit your entry on the official form by 22nd January 2015. We look forward to your participation. Further information and additional entry forms are obtainable from:

The Global Food Safety Initiative is an industry-driven initiative providing thought leadership and guidance on food safety management system controls necessary to assure the safety of the food supply chain. This work is advanced through collaboration between the world's leading food safety experts from retail, manufacturing and food service companies, as well as international organisations, governments, academia and service providers to the global food industry. They meet together at Technical Working Group and Stakeholder meetings, conferences and regional events to share knowledge and promote a harmonized approach to managing food safety across the industry. GFSI is managed by the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), a global, parity-based industry network, driven by its members.
Safe food for consumers everywhere.
Provide continuous improvement in food safety management systems to ensure confidence in the delivery of safe food to consumers worldwide.
During the 90s, there had been a series of high-profile international food safety crises including BSE, dioxin and listeria. Within the food industry there was a growing audit fatigue as retailers and brand manufacturers audited factories against their countless in-house standards, each developed in isolation and with no consideration of convergence. The results showed no consistency. Consumer and food industry confidence was low.
The main goal was laid out at the very beginning and remains a compelling message: once certified, accepted everywhere. GFSI chose the benchmarking approach as there were existing foundations. The British Retail Consortium had already published their first BRC food safety standard in 1998. The German and French retailers were starting to work together on the International Food Standard (IFS) and the Food Marketing Institute, the Trade Association for the North American retailers, were developing their Safe Quality Food (SQF) Standard.
GFSI has developed to become more than a benchmarking organisation. Its collaborative approach brings together international food safety experts from the entire supply chain at Technical Working Group and Stakeholder meetings, conferences and regional events. They share knowledge and promote a harmonised approach with a shared vision of “safe food for consumers everywhere.”
How to get involved with GFSI
There are several ways you can find out more about GFSI and join our global stakeholder platform for networking, knowledge exchange and sharing of best food safety practices and information.
Please note that GFSI does not have a 'membership' system as such; we are an open forum for collaboration comprised of various stakeholders associated with the food supply chain. GFSI is however managed by an international trade association called The Consumer Goods Forum of which your company can become a member. Please go to the CGF website that will provide more information on membership and its benefits which includes discounts to the Global Food Safety Conference and other events which could be of interest to your company.
