History and Goals of Cyprus Dietetic and Nutrition Association (CyDNA)
1991- "Cyprus Association of Food Scientists/ Technologists and Dietitians "Food Scientists,
Food Technologists and Dietitians were grouped together due to the small number of the professionals of the different specialisation's working in Cyprus at that time. "Food" and its relation to the different professions, and the need to be established as professionals in Cyprus brought them together.
