Street vendors across the city will undergo a training program to ensure food safety.
Story so far: While not directly related to street food, safety and hygiene are in focus after a picture showing poor hygiene went viral from a popular food chain outlet in the city.
- The training program by the BBMP will be for street food vendors on cleanliness and safety standards as per the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
- Once they complete the program, they’ll be given a certificate to sell food. It’ll help give them some recognition and gain the trust of consumers.
Public’s role: Officials have asked for the public’s help in this initiative. They’ve urged people to flag unhygienic stalls and inform authorities about them.
