Dear Aspirant, from your question it seems that you have bachelor degree in Food Technology and you are in dilemma, where to work, in India or USA.

The scope of food technologist is increasing day by day, because new and new food companies are coming in market. These companies look for food technologists for a particular job. The difference is also there, what company you wish to join, is it a big or small company?. whether you are you going to work as quality control or other job inside laboratories or field job.
A big company in India, with a good turn over will pay to handsome amount, on the other hand, a small company with little turn over will pay you less. In USA this is not the case, there you will get remuneration based on working hours. But in a big company, the chances of growth is more and it all depends upon the performance of the person.
A bachelor in Food Technology will have less chance of intake in company compared to a Food Technologist having masters degree. A master degree in Food Technology will have better chances of job. The reason being that a post graduate has more knowledge, and will be able to understand the food process, quality control and food storage aspects. A post graduate in food technology will be placed at higher position compared to a simple graduate.
In USA also a post graduate in Food Technology will be considered for a higher position. I f you have masters degree, you can also look for jobs in universities and institutes. There you will work as lecturer, Assistant Professor, or scientist or researcher. If you wish to grow further in your career, then a doctoral degree in Food Technology will be an advantage. After having doctoral degree you will be able to work as educationist and you can impart the knowledge, to others.
If you wish to join a research group, then you can carry out new research in the field of food technology. You will be able to convert your ideas into reality and sky will be the limit.
After having a doctoral degree definitely, you will have good opportunities in USA. In India also you will have good opportunities in colleges and universities. But in USA you will be able to make yourself economically better.
Good Luck....
