The food and hospitality industry has seen a lot of trending developments in recent times especially post covid and it has been overwhelming to see the food industry boom at a much faster pace now.

Dr. Kaviraj is also listed on the Board of Studies for curriculum design to bridge the gap between the industry & academia for various colleges, training centre’s & universities across India.
