Food & Consumer Science Professionals
Our History

fcsp-historyThe wide range of food and food-related professionals is something our members have always appreciated. Our rich heritage dates back to 1925, when 33 talented, ambitious women employed by local milling companies, food service institutions and utilities formed this organization. Formerly Twin Cities Home Economists in Business, the organization has been part of national and regional organizations in the past. Today we operate independently, as a non-profit. From the initial group of 33, our membership has expanded to around 80 members. Today’s members are food business professionals, entrepreneurs and business owners, educators, test kitchen professionals, food stylists, food scientists and technologists, recipe developers and testers, registered dietitians and nutritionists, consumer product specialists, food marketers, and students. As an organization, we come together to connect and network with each other, learn from experts in our fields, apply that new information to our businesses, and to make a positive impact at our workplaces and in our communities.
