The congress, held every four years, is sponsored by the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFOST), which represents over 150000 food scientists and technologists from around the world, Over 1500 scientists, food technologists, educators, food industry representives, consumers and representatives from government, intergovernmental agencies and non-governmental organizations participated in the meeting, where they declared their commitment to protect and promote nutritional well-being for all.
The Budapest Declaration is based on the World Declaration on Nutrition of the FAO/WHO International Conference on Nutrition, Rome, December 1992, which was adopted by acclamation by ministers and plenipotentiaries representing 159 States and the European Economic Community.
