Promotion of Education and Research in Food & Nutrition has been one of the primary objectives of the Association and is carried out in many ways.
PFNDAI conducts numerous Nutrition Awareness Activities usually sponsored by some of our member companies in different colleges across India offering Food Science, Nutrition and Food technology courses. The objective of this activity is to create awareness about Food Safety, Nutrition, and Quality among students and also to bridge the gap between academia and industry. The activity involves various students’ competitions followed by a half-day seminar mostly having speakers from the industry.
Every Year PFNDAI accepts applications from various Colleges having Food Science, Nutrition and Food technology as subjects and identifies and awards the eligible students the PFNDAI Merit-Cum-Means Scholarship Grants. These scholarships are also sponsored by some of our renowned member companies.
