In 1985, the food process major in the Department of Horticulture and the Department of Food Engineering were merged becoming the College of Food Science.

The College includes three departments:
    Department of Food Science,

Department of Food Engineering,

Department of Nutrition and Food Safety.

It has three research centers:

National Research & Development Center For vegetable Processing,

Fujian Provincial Engineering Technology Research Center of Marine Biological Resources ComprehensiveProcessing and Safety Risk Assessment.

Fujian Provincial Engineering Technology Research Center of Agricultural Process.

It also has four laboratories:

Fujian Provincial Key Laboratory of Special Starch Quality Science and Processing Technology,

Central and Local Building Laboratory of Food Quality and Safety,
