Scope of the Programme:

     The application of the technical aspects of food or food Technology to the processing, selection, preservation, packaging and distribution of safe and healthy food is known as food technology. Therefore food technology deals with the study of the physical, chemical and the microbiological aspects of food. Effective national food control systems are essential to protect the health and safety of domestic consumers. They are also critical in enabling countries to assure the safety and quality of their foods entering international trade and to ensure that imported foods conform to national requirements. The new global environment for food trade places considerable obligations on both importing and exporting countries to strengthen their food control systems and to implement and enforce risk-based food control strategies. Consumers are taking unprecedented interest in the way food is produced, processed and marketed, and are increasingly calling for their Governments to accept greater responsibility for food safety and consumer protection. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have a strong interest in promoting national food control systems that are based upon scientific principles and guidelines, and which address all sectors of the food chain. This is particularly important for developing countries as they seek to achieve improved food safety, quality and nutrition, but will require a high level of political and policy commitment. In many countries, effective food control is undermined by the existence of fragmented legislation, multiple jurisdictions, and weaknesses in surveillance, monitoring and enforcement.

Career Prospects in Food Processing Technology :

     Hotel Management, Dairy Technology and Home Science are some industries where the knowledge of food technology courses can be put to practice. He/She can pursue a lucrative career as a food technologist in government owned and private organizations in India. Food technologists are employed in restaurants, food processing companies, food research laboratories and catering companies. Food manufacturing companies also employ food technologists who test the quality and taste of food before it is distributed in the world market.

Course Outlook:

     Food Processing Technology is a post graduation course. It is of two year duration. The study of Food Technology covers Unit Operations, Plant Food Technology, Food Quality & Safety, Food Quality Systems & Management, Animal Product Technology, Emerging Technologies in Food Processing, Novel Food Packaging Technology etc.
