About Course

Food technology is a branch of food science that equips a student with technical knowledge of food processing. As a student of Food Technology, one learns the art of preservation, processing and packaging food along with the techniques of transforming raw materials into safe, nutritious, wholesome ready-to-consume food. It also involves addition of flavours, reduction of toxins and so on. With rise in demand for packaged and processed food, there is an equal rise in demand of manpower with good sense of packaging and preservation, which makes a product more marketable.
