The International Committee on Food Microbiology and Hygiene was founded in 1953. The major scope of ICFMH is to contribute to food safety and controlling food spoilage internationally, by means of organizing conferences (e.g. FOODMICRO), symposia and workshops, supporting of international bodies in food microbiology issues, publications, and initiation of education and training in food microbiology. The ICFMH particularly focuses on the food safety situation in developing countries, with a special mission towards the African situation.
