Our organisation

The Institut Européen d’Histoire et des Cultures de l’Alimentation (IEHCA, European Institute for
the History and Cultures of Food) was set up in 2001 by the French Ministry of National Education,
Higher Education and Research in partnership with the Centre-Val de Loire region and Tours University.
A scientific and cultural development agency, we seek to encourage university research and teaching in connection with “food cultures and heritages” in the humanities and social sciences.
