SAAFoST, The First Fifty Years – a history of the South African Association for Food Science and Technology was published in limited edition in 2010, the year in which the Association celebrated its 50th Anniversary. It was compiled by Honorary Life Member, Dr Bernard Cole who very ably and diligently researched the SAAFoST archives and associated magazines and publications for the necessary information, documents and photographs.

In order to add more SAAFoST information and photographs to the book and to avoid printing costs, the text of the above publication has been prepared for the SAAFoST website by Past President (2001-2003), Honorary Life Member and SAAFoST Archivist, Mr Ron Timm.
