IFA Chief Executive Officer and Director General, Alzbeta Klein, said:

“I am excited to be opening the new IFA London office today, and to be co-located with Gafta in this historic building. IFA has been a UK registered company since its inception in 1927 and the establishment of this office will enable us to become a dual-centered organization, while retaining our strong, experienced employee base in Paris. Gafta and IFA have complementary offerings and I believe our two industries will also benefit from this closer association.”

GAFTA Director General, Jaine Chisholm Caunt OBE, said:

“I am delighted to welcome IFA to 9 Lincoln’s Inn Fields to be co-located with Gafta. Gafta and IFA are both members of the International Agrifood Network (IAFN) and have worked together for many years on UN-focused work to ensure global food security remains a vital priority for policymakers. I am sure that this new development will enable further fruitful opportunities for collaborative activities, which will benefit all our members.”
