Dear aspirant, many thanks for your question, in fact this is a very practical question. Here you have not mentioned your academic qualifications and what you are doing at present. Let me tell something about a food technologist.
The food technologist are responsible for safe and efficient development, modifications, and manufacture of food processes. Food technologist are employed by variety of private sectors and government organizations.The salary of a person depends upon the academic qualifications, number of years of relent experience and place of working.The academic qualifications are very important, because the person holding a graduate degree in Food Technology of Food Science is also technically food technologist. But in government sector the food technologist should possess minimum a post graduation degree. The post graduation degree has many specializations, based on the specialization the person gets or finds a suitable job. Another thing is that a food technologist having a degree of doctorate (PhD) will have better edge compared to a post graduate.The number of years of relevant experience do matter both in government and private sector. Generally a experienced person is proffered compared to a fresher, owing to the exposure of techniques and tools. The place of work also decide the salary of a person. If a food technologist is working in local food manufacturing or processing unit the salary will be less compared to a big private company (Dabur) or multinational companies. Another point in private companies, on which position the person is working, whether in quality control department, process department, marketing department, safety and quality aspects, modifying existing and prevalent products and generating ideas for new products. Therefore, the importance of a person will decide the salary. Normally in private sector a fresher (post graduate or PhD holder) may earn upto Rs. 50,000 to 75,000 per month. The smaller local food processing companies will pay comparatively less. In government sector the food technologist find jobs in colleges, institutes and universities, Here the entry level is lecturer, assistant professor or assistant scientist. The starting salary is Rs. 15600-37100 plus academic grade pay of Rs. 5400 per month. This salary increases with increase in experience and promotion. Now you can make out that a food technologist will earn how much in five years. My suggestion is, improve your qualifications and experience and you will get what ever you want.With all my best wishes,Good Luck...
