This was achieved by creation of Centre of Food T echnology under Institute of Professional Studies. Centre of Food Technology (CFT) has taken a holistic view of manpower planning in food industry. The vision encompasses food science, food production, food processing, food technology, food safety, food management, entrepreneurship development, food processing and rural development; agriculture and industry linkage through food processing, quality assurance for safe food, research and development on functional foods.
