Clean Street Food

India has a rich tradition of street food that often reflects local culture. Easy availability of street food coupled with its wide variety and delicacy of the offerings, not to forget the comparative low prices, have made street food popular with all sections of society, including the elite and foreign tourists.

Street food is, however, often perceived as unhygienic and a major health risk. Hence there is a need for capacity building of street food vendors that should lead to their behavior change. Many initiatives have been taken up in the past, but these were all sporadic and did not take up all vendors in any area, as a result, were not sustainable.

Project Clean Street Food is one of the initiatives taken up by FSSAI under a 360 degree approach to Food Safety and Healthy Nutrition. This would involve training and capacity building of the street food vendors and ensure proper regulatory oversight over them under the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.

Broad objectives of Project Clean Street Food:

  • To ensure health, hygiene and safety standard of street food for all consumers.
  • To ensure social and economic upliftment of street vendor community by helping them in improving quality of offerings thereby attracting more customers.
  • To enhance the popularity of Street food by transforming it into a global brand by itself.
