Dear Aspirant, technically speaking, there is no difference in a Food technology degree from India and abroad.

Both the degrees are are at the same level. Practically speaking, there is lot of difference in obtaining Food technology degree from India and abroad.
If you obtain a degree from abroad, specially from US, Canada, Australia or England then definitely you will be having an edge over a degree from other countries. You will have better chances of job in western hemisphere and specially in Middle East countries.
If you want to work in countries out side India, then degree in Food technology from English speaking countries will give you preference. Even if you prefer to work in India with a foreign degree, I believe it will make some difference. The reason being that, it is a general notion that education methodology in western countries is better than India. This notion is also proved that recently in a survey none of Indian university came in the list of top 100 Universities of the world, not even the Indian Institute of Technology.
The reason is that the education standard of western universities is very high, the quality of education they impart, the quality of research they carry out with novel ideas, is definitely appreciable.
In Indian context, at the time of interview, your knowledge and trainings will speak about your caliber. Therefore, any body with an Indian degree from Food Technology can compete for a suitable post.
Lets take another example of job opportunities in Middle east. I have worked as Scientist for eight years in this region. I have seen many times that for a well paid job in Universities or research institutions, the person with a degree from Western Hemisphere were preferred over a person having a degree from Asian countries. Indians are second to none in knowledge and technical experience, even then someone having degree from abroad, but with little or no experience or technical knowledge have an edge over Asian degrees.
In my suggestion, if you can get a degree from abroad, it will be better for you to get job outside India. If you are going to work in India only, then better do it from here. Here the degree fee is nominal and you will be trained as per the requirements of Indian scenario.
Good Luck....
