This training will explore vision to UG students for food processing industries and may you be job giver than job seeker.
Pre Event Description :
College of Agricultural Engineering and Technology going to organize Five Days Vocational Training Series – 2023-24 under the aegis of NAHEP-IDP, ICAR. Eminent speakers from the reputed institutes and industries across the country have been invited in these trainings to share their domain expertise to the students. The Vocational Training Series :2023-24 comprises of four vocational trainings out of which Department of Processing and Food Engineering is organizing vocational training on II.

It has started producing many new items like ready-to-eat food, beverages, processed and frozen fruit and vegetable products, marine and meat products, etc. It also include establishment of post-harvest infrastructure for processing of various food items like cold storage facilities, food parks, packaging centers, value addition centers, irradiation facilities and modernised processing facilities. It is, therefore, imperative to introduce state-of-the-art technology in the food-processing sector to minimise post-harvest losses. The training on “Emerging Trends in Food Process Industries” will give the practical knowledge to the students of B. Tech. Agricultural engineering to understand Opportunities to set up spice processing Unit in MSME sector, Emerging technology for Onion Processing, New processing machinery for green bengal gram, ginger, turmeric, aloevera, Aonla, Emerging technology for garlic processing etc.
