IFA requires samples of food or product for photographs and tasting. The member(s) or site(s) being assessed are responsible for cost of assessment samples. All members are invited to attend IFA Board Meetings (6 times per year). These meetings are meant to encourage networking, creativity, and excitement about an important segment of Indiana’s heritage and economy.
