Indian Institute of Food Processing Technology

Formerly known as the Indian Institute of Crop Processing Technology, the Indian Institute of Food Processing Technology is a pioneer Research and Development Institute under the Ministry of Food Processing Industries, Government of India. 

At the very beginning, the Institute started to seek solutions for preserving high moisture paddy because the paddy harvest season in Southern India coincided with the tail end of the South West monsoon. At the time of up-gradation the mandates of the Institute were also changed and the scientists in the Institute focused their research in identifying technologies for post harvest procession and preservation of paddy. The Institute is currently located in Thanjavur.
