Project Clean Street Food Launched
Mar 26, 2016

The Project Clean Street Food has been launched recently in New Delhi. This is a pragmatic, practical, constructive and positive approach to skilling one of the largest unorganised sectors of the country.

  • The project of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) aims at to raise the safety standards of foods sold on streets across the capital city of New Delhi by training 20,000 roadside vendors on aspects of health and hygiene, in the first phase.

  • As part of Project Clean Street Food, FSSAI will partner with the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship to train street food vendors at more than 40 centres across Delhi under the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) category of the Government’s flagship skills training scheme- Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY).

  • There are nearly 20 lakh street vendors in the country. As street food forms an integral part of Indian society, the project which shall upgrade the skills of the street food vendors will also contribute to preventive and promotive health.

  • Project Clean Street Food will change the lives of millions of Indians at the bottom of the pyramid, boost the country’s economic development and lead to the rediscovery of India’s rich tradition of street food.

  • Under the Delhi Project, 20,000 food street vendors would be trained, assessed and certified by seven training partners at 40 training centres set up for the purpose across Delhi.

  • The Tourism and Hospitality Sector Skill Council (THSC), an affiliate of the National Skill Development Corporation, Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship will be the training provider under the Project.

  • Food vendors will receive Smart Skill-cum-Registration cards on completion of the training.

The FSSAI also launched a Mobile App to empower citizens to reach out to the food enforcement machinery for any concerns or suggestions that they may have on the issue of food safety.
