The All India Coordinated Research Project on Post Harvest Engineering & Technology was launched by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Department of Agricultural Research & Education, Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India, in September 1972. It started with R&D Centres at ten locations.

During the V, VI and IX Plans, eleven more centres were inducted. In X Plan EFC, eight new centres were started and four existing centres were assigned enlarged mandate on dairy, fisheries, horticulture, and meat products. Besides, five ongoing centres of AICRP on Jaggery and Khandsari were merged with AICRP on PHET w. e. f. April 2004.
