Laboratory for Technology of Fruits and Vegetables Preservation and Processing has existed since 1958 (still within the Technical Faculty at the time) although under this exact name since 1998. Until then, there were more related names that reflected mostly the same area of its activity except for the period 1971-1998 when wine making was included in its name, and research and teaching related to this area were conducted. Furthermore, research and teaching on aromatic herbs and spices has also been carried out since 2005.
