In the rapid world, people are not getting time to cook their meals, and as a result, street foods have surged. However, the dependency on fast food is due to the higher migration rate and rapid urbanisation.
The urban population, mostly bachelors and working men, have developed the habit of consuming in roadside eateries as they were better economic alternatives at the month-end. So, The hygiene factors are to be enhanced in the roadside shops in the city.
The prime reason for grubbiness in the roadside shops is their location. The habitat of these shops is predominantly in the sub-roads or nearby the main road. Because of this, the cooked food may have the chance of getting contaminated if not appropriately covered, which leads to serious health issues.
The government has initiated a ‘Street Food Hub’ system to tackle the issue. In this, a vacant government land will be turned into a hotspot for the street food vendors. Furthermore, it will be monitored efficiently for hygiene and food quality.
The awareness of the RUCO (Repurpose Used Cooking Oil) scheme under Eat Right India campaign will be circulated among the street vendors. They will be encouraged to sell the used oils to prepare bio-fuel.
