The Sindh Food Authority’s (SFA) Director General, Agha Fakhar Hussain, has announced a major program that would improve students’ access to professional and educational possibilities in the field of food sciences and technology.
Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) have been signed by SFA with universities in the public and commercial sectors to provide internship opportunities to students from their various departments of technology and food sciences.
Furthermore, to strengthen the practical component of these universities’ academic programs, the authorities have promised to support them in setting up Food Testing Labs.
At the SFA office, a certificate distribution ceremony was organized to honor the first group of Tando Jam Agriculture University interns who had successfully finished their training.
In addition to offering a venue for experiential learning, this partnership between the Sindh Food Authority and the Agriculture University of Tando Jam is evidence of both organizations’ dedication to enhancing students’ potential and academic performance.
In addition, as part of this collaboration, Sindh Food Authority will actively assist with the modernization of the university’s Food Sciences department’s laboratories, guaranteeing that students will have access to cutting-edge resources.
Agha Fakhar Hussain expressed optimism that the students who are participating will find great value in the training and support offered by these Memorandums of Understanding, as it will provide them with the practical knowledge and skills necessary for a career in the Food Sciences and Technology industry.
This program emphasizes how important it is for educational institutions and regulatory agencies to work together to close the knowledge gap between theory and practice, which will eventually benefit the food sector and the community at large.
