The IFR Science Publications Database contains a listing of all non-confidential scientific publications produced by IFR staff from 1996 onwards. It is continually updated to reflect the science being undertaken across IFR.
A new publication (2014) provides a brief introduction to the Institute of Food Research, its mission and science focus.

A short history of Food Research
With the help of current and former scientists, Science Historian, Dr Sarah Wilmot has worked on the archive of documents held at IFR, particularly those which relate to the Low Temperature Research Station in Cambridge. This short history portrays a few of the key people and their contributions concentrating on LTRS, and the Food Research Institute in Norwich and bringing the story up to the present day.

Impact of the IFR
An independent report on the impact of the Institute of Food Research has shown that every £1 invested in IFR delivers £8 in benefits to the UK economy.
In generating this report, Brookdale Consulting have looked at a number of IFR projects that have had, or will have, significant impacts on both the health of the nation and on its economic strength. Whilst the IFR is independent and receives public funding through the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council to support fundamental research into food and health, it must work alongside industry to ensure these research findings have their impact on the food we eat.
