FOSFA membership is open to any individual, company or organisation that is actively involved in the trading of oils, seeds and fats, or provides supporting services. There are five key categories of membership and we also invite other associations related to the industry to join.

Joining FOSFA enables members to benefit from a range of services, such as access to contracts, arbitration, technical expertise, involvement in our committees, advisory services, training programmes, networking events and more. Our how to become a member and membership subscription pages provide further information about how to apply.
