Guwahati, Feb 15 (UNI) The first state-of-the-art food testing laboratory in entire North East will be coming up in Guwahati within the next year.
The food testing laboratory is being built by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a leading think tank involved in conducting research for sustainable development in the country.
Informing of the project, TERI-NE director Dr Dipankar Saharia said, “This will be first such equipped lab for food testing in the entire North East. It will be under the Food Processing Industry ministry of the Centre.”
He said, construction work has already started at the TERI campus in Guwahati and is likely to be operational within one year, adding that getting necessary certifications for the lab to open requires time.

The state government has already provided land near IIT-Guwahati at Amingaon area and earth-filing work has also started, he said, adding that it will start functioning within two years.
Dr Saharia said, “The Guwahati campus will have the same courses as the main varsity, but focus will be on courses dealing with water, natural resources, biotechnology, etc.”
