The Institute will function as a knowledge centre in food processing field with emphasis on inter-disciplinary research, developing new products and processes and incubating innovative ideas. It will also provide a forum for intense interaction with industry, Government, consumers and experts on the emerging contours of the food processing industry.
The Institute is expected to guide and advise on the human resource development support required for the sector and the regulatory framework for the industry. The Institute is likely to be partly operational this year.
