Welcome to Nutritionists in Industry (NII), a group of like-minded individuals who exchange information and discuss ideas regarding all areas of nutrition within industry.

The aim of the Nutritionists in Industry group is to raise the profile of nutritionists and dietitians working in the food industry, as a credible source of nutrition information, knowledge and expertise, to the benefit of the industry and ultimately the consumer. See our constitution for a full description of the aims of the group and how it is run.

The Nutritionists in Industry group is a UK organisation and membership is open to people working as a nutritionist or dietitian in industry with appropriate qualifications.

Who can become a member?

Membership of NII is open to any individual working as a ‘registered’ nutritionist (UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists or any organisation superseding this) or Associate member, or ‘registered’ dietitian (Health Professions Council) in the food, drink or pharmaceutical industry. This will include producers, manufacturers, retailers and caterers.

Individuals who do not meet these requirements could be considered if they have appropriate qualifications. These individuals will be assessed by the Committee on a case-by-case basis.

Freelancers who meet the membership criteria, are eligible to join but must provide details of their industry clients, and any vested interests on the application form.

The food, drink and pharmaceutical industry is deemed to include organisations that advise industry on nutrition issues such as the Food and Drink Federation, British Nutrition Foundation and Leatherhead Food International.

How much does it cost to be a member?

There is a set membership fee which currently stands at £50 for one year.

The membership year will run April 5th until April 4th.

If you’re interested in becoming a member of NII check out our membership criteria.  Then download and complete the NII New Member Application Form 2024. Details of where to send your application can be found at the bottom of the form.

We’ll be in touch as soon as your form has been reviewed with next steps.
