ILPS Foundation Meeting Participants

What is ILPS?

The International Lecithin and Phospholipid Society (ILPS) was registered in 2013 in Cologne, Germany as a non-for-profit association. Originally ILPS was incorporated in 1991 in the USA. The ILPS Board and Membership decided to transfer the Society registration to Europe, since most ILPS events are organized in Europe. ILPS consists of corporate members from Academia, Institutes and Industry in the Food, Cosmetic, Pharmaceutical and Technical sectors.

  • Promoting standardization of materials and analytical methodology to analyze lecithin and phospholipids.
  • Issuing specialized relevant literature, position papers and newsletter.
