Nepal is an agrarian country. Agriculture including livestock contributes around one third to the gross domestic production (GDP). Agriculture is the mainstay of nearly two third of economically active population of Nepal. Despite this scenario, our agricultural system has not been appropriately transformed into manufacturing industries so as to produce value added products and ultimately not being able to serve for the well being of Nepalese farmers. So as to develop our agricultural and livestock system by improving different stages of value chains such as production, marketing, processing, packaging, etc., technological interventions are very much needed. For that qualified human resources are to be produced so that they could either work in agro-based food industries or they could themselves start their own agro-based food enterprises/industries.
To fulfill such gaps, CAFODAT College has been working to produce Diploma level as well as Bachelor level manpower suitable in food and dairy business/processing sector. Similarly, so as to help in solving food and nutrition security related problems of the country, especially producing manpower to fit in community nutrition, diet management in hospitals, dietary counseling in clinics, schools and communities, etc., the college has been running a 2 years M.Sc. Nutrition and Dietetics program – only one science based such program in the country. Considering the facts mentioned above, I would like to urge enthusiastic youngsters and their guardians to join us in solving national problems through education by producing competent and bonafide technical human capital for the country.
