Clean Food Program for the Street Food Vendors in India

Rathna Malhotra Gaur

In India, road side food is particularly relished. This sector acts as an important source of revenue for the government and local populations. As hygiene standards and the quality of the food remain an issues, the Indian Constitution and the Judiciary have recognized the fundamental rights of the street food vendors and have imposed reasonable restrictions. The legislature has enacted the Food Safety and Standards Act in 2006 to monitor the quality of food and laid down science-based standards to protect the citizen’s right to clean and hygienic food. An essential element of this plan is Clean Street Food Hub Program. The programme lays down standards with regard to quality, cleanliness and hygiene with the aim of supporting street food vendors in India increase their revenue.
