The Institute was set up in 1949, and it changed its names as follows:

- 1949 – 1954 the Main Institute of Agricultural and Food Industry
- 1954 – 1988 the Institute of Fermentation Industry
- 1988 - 1995 the Institute of Biotechnology of the Agricultural and Food Industry
- since 1995 the Institute of Agricultural and Food Biotechnology (IAFB)

The Institute is subjected to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Elaboration of the scientific fundamentals of food technology and technique development is the purpose of Institute activity. This purpose is realised by carrying on the R&D works and their implementations, as well as by dissemination of the research results.

Culture Collection of Industrial Micro-organisms in IAFB has the status of International Depository Organ, entitled to receipt microbial strains being the subjects of patent applications. The Collection is a member of World Federation of Culture Collections as well as European Culture Collections’ Organisation.
