Dear friend, thank you for your question, here you have not mentioned your academic qualifications and what are you doing now a days. But from your question, it seems that that either you are pursuing Food technology course or you have completed it.


A food technologist is involved in developing and improving the existing food products. They also set standards for producing, packaging and marketing food. They study the chemistry, microbiology, biochemistry and engineering and other scientific subjects to study the process of food deterioration.

The typical salary of food technologist depends upon the academic qualifications, number of years of relevant experience, place of work and additional qualifications. The academic qualification relates to whether a person is graduate, post graduate or doctoral degree holder. Technically speaking the person holding a degree in BTech Food technology is a Food technologist. He is eligible to get entry into governmental and private organizations. But due to severe competition the person holding the degree of M.Tech or doctoral degree do have more chances of getting a job, specially in governmental sector.

The place of work (governmental sector or private sector) also important and here salary of a person vary. In governmental sector (colleges, universities, institutions) the entry level is lecturer, assistant professor or assistant scientist. The starting pay scale of Rs. 15600-37100 plus academic grade pay (AGP) of Rs. 5400 per month. The salary of a person increases with increase in experience and promotion. On the other hand, in private sector the entry level depends upon the qualifications and number of years of experience. A person holding a post graduate degree in food technology do have more chances to get entry and therefore, the salary will be more compared to a simple graduate person. Here the salary will be around Rs. 50,000 for a fresher and for a person with few years of experience the salary is around Rs. 85,000 per month. In multinational companies, the salary of a fresher could be around Rs. 1,00,000 per month. The small private companies pay less and they generally recruit the graduates only.

The average salary of a food technologist (usually a post graduate) in USA (in private company) will be around USD 63,000 per annum, with some experience the salary will be around USD 85,000 per annum.

Now you have decide, where do you wish to work, either in governmental sector or private organization.

With all my best wishes,

Good Luck..
