There is a big gap between Industry’s expectations and what we learn in colleges. Colleges provide us with the fundamentals, but their applications are required in Industry. The perspective, the approach, and the environment are very different than our imagination as students. Due to this gap, a student struggles a little bit at the beginning of the career either as an employee or as an intern/trainee.

We at FoodTech Pathshala understood this well and so we are providing a holistic solution to this perennial problem. With the help of industry experts, we have curated courses that will act as finishing schools for fresh graduates and young professionals through our flagship program.
