The Institute of Hotel Management, Catering Technology and Applied Nutrition, Mumbai the first of its kind in South East Asia was founded in 1954 by the All India Women’s Central Food Council under the leadership of Late Smt. Lilavati Munshi. Late Smt. Lilavati Munshi with a band of courageous women which included Smt. Homi J H Taleyarkhan and Smt. Leela N Jog under the name of All India Women’s Central Food Council established a chain of Annapoornas (restaurants) throughout the country, but primarily in the metropolitan cities to prepare and sell economic but nutritionally sound snacks and foods.
The purpose was to improve the nutritional status of the average from a high cereal diet to a more balanced diet. The critical factor however was to find trained personnel to run these Annapoornas on a self-financing basis. Hence the birth of the training Institute - IHM Mumbai.Hotel Management and Catering Technology was still a young discipline in those days even in the West, in fact, the school of Hotel Administration of Cornell University bifurcated from the Department of Home Economics as a separate faculty only in 1954.
