Gogoi visits CFTRI in Mysore; stresses more tech

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Sunday visited the Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) and got wind of the latest developments in the food technology field.

Gogoi, who arrived at the CFTRI campus in Yadavagiri, was welcomed by CFTRI Acting Director Dr.G. Venkateswara Rao, who apprised Gogoi of the use of buffalo milk in making milk powder since it has higher percentage of fat and about the research on adding natural colours to food items instead of the conventional synthetic colours.
Gogoi later took a look at the dosa and idli making machines developed by CFTRI — the institute's pride. This is the third visit of Gogoi to the CFTRI, the first occasion being when he was the Agriculture Minister of Assam and second, when he was the Union Minister of State for Food Processing Industry.

Speaking to Star of Mysore, Gogoi said that he was keen on adopting the latest technology in the food sector in his home State as it would create more employment opportunities.
