Praise for the first edition:
‘The staff of IFIS are to be congratulated on producing such a comprehensive work of reference, which should command itself a place on the book-shelves of almost anyone working in the food industry at the scientific, technical, managerial, teaching or advisory levels.’

‘This is a reference book par excellence … It has been very carefully prepared and I found it useful in editing and proof-reading. Certainly one for your shelf.’ - iChemE Food and Drink Subject Group Newsletter
‘…the [team] at IFIS have done an excellent job. Entries do exactly what dictionary entries should do...this reference will really fit the bill…in the industrial, professional and supporting research areas…In particular those non (food) scientists who have supervisory and management responsibility in a food area will find this dictionary a ‘godsend’. I fully expect every library where any food subject is taught to keep a copy…When comparing this Dictionary to anything else on the market, there is very little competition at all. I shall be ordering copies for my University library.’
