EUFIC Food & Health Internship

EUFIC - the European Food Information Council, is a non-profit organisation that provides science-based information on food and health.

We are passionate science and communication experts who believe in the power of knowledge, and in a world where people choose to live healthily because they know how to.

Our funding comes from individual food and drink companies, the European Commission, foundations, umbrella organisations and from sales of publications.
