BNF Celebrating 50 years 1967 -  2017

British Nutrition Foundation
Celebrating 50 years of making nutrition science accessible to all
1967 – 2017

The Foundation was established in 1967 as a registered charity to stimulate research and education in the field of nutrition. Its objects, established at that time, still have relevance today, namely to educate the public in nutrition; develop the training and education for those involved in training or education of others; and advance the study of, and research into, nutrition.


As part of this celebratory year BNF is launching some new activities - BNF Talks, BNF Blogs and our 50th anniversary conference series.
