NIFTEM: Addressing the Talent Crunch of the Indian Food Processing Industry

India in the new millennium has created a significant position for itself in the production of agricultural crops. Its transition from self sustenance to surplus production is remarkable.


It is no surprise that the food processing sector has emerged as the most promising sector having acquired the unique distinction of being adaptive in terms of embracing latest technologies, cutting edge skills, professionalism and expertise.


NIFTEM: Brings in Global Excellence

In order to enhance the availability of talent in the industry and to harness the full potential of the Indian food processing industry, the Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MOFPI) has taken a path breaking initiative to set up the "National Institute of Food Technology Entrepreneurship and Management at Kundli in Sonipat (Haryana)", as an apex world-class institute to cater the needs of various stakeholders, including exporters, entrepreneurs and policy makers.


NIFTEM: Curriculum Development Initiative

NIFTEM will attempt to seamlessly blend various facets of the food industry from production to retail, to ensure that all those involved in these activities reap the maximum possible benefits. It envisages being the focal point for catalyzing the growth of the food processing industries. The institution offers B.Tech., M.Tech. and Ph.D. programmes in Food Technology and Management. NIFTEM has also undertaken research and extension activities. For this a 'Task Force' of subject experts was constituted which discussed the course curriculum structure and design, eligibility criteria for admission and prepared a detailed syllabus which was sent for an extensive review to about 250 distinguished professionals in the area of Food Science and Technology both at the national as well as the international level. The result of the same has now been compiled and inducted as per the suggestions and comments proposed by the reviewers from the food processing industry as well academic institutes.
