IFSE takes a variety of approaches to providing information to entrepreneurs and those already in the food industry. Workshops and the annual Better Process Control School provide training in food issues in a classroom setting. Publications such as factsheets and manuals are offered on a variety of subjects so that interested persons can read and learn at their own pace.

Links to information about some of IFSE's outreach activities are provided below.
