About the Institute

The National Institute of Food Technology, Entrepreneurship and Management - Thanjavur (NIFTEM-T) is an Institute of National Importance functioning under the aegis of the Ministry of Food Processing Industries, Government of India. Over the years, we have expanded our mandates – from an R&D laboratory to finding solutions for post-harvest preservation of paddy located at Thiruvarur - TN in 1967, to Paddy Processing Research Center (PPRC) to Indian Institue of Crop Processing Technology (IICPT) to Indian Institute of Food Processing Technology (IIFPT) to what we are now – NIFTEM-Thanjavur. This journey has witnessed major milestones in research, academic excellence, outreach, and services. Apart from our main campus at Thanjavur, we have our liaison offices at Bathinda and Guwahati, primarily focusing on skill development and outreach. Over a period of 50 years, the institute has evolved in different dimensions like education, research, consultation, skill development, capacity building, business incubation, etc. NIFTEM-T mainly focus on inclusive and sustainable growth of post-harvest processing and value addition towards accomplishing economic thriving and prosperous food processing sector of the nation. The institute caters the needs of the country by developing skilled/technical manpower for achieving the targets like sustained food security for all, safe food supply at grass root levels, reduced food losses and economic prosperity of country. Today, the institute is internationally well knowing among the academicians for its high-class education and superior research achievements. NIFTEM-T offers one Under Graduate program, three super specialized post graduate program and two doctoral programs. Having more than 5 decades of experience in the field of food processing, the institute delivered more than 600 young professional to the core field and they are proving their phenomenal prudence in food processing domain both in India and aboard. NIFTEM-T is not mere graduating the students, it creates doyens in food processing. NIFTEM-T is a road to excellence; board into that for prosperous, promising and peaceful future.
