You will see ‘Food streets’ at Girgaum and Juhu Chowpatty very soon!
Mumbai will soon get two ‘Food streets’ at Girgaum and Juhu Chowpatty, where food will be prepared and sold in a clean environment. The ministry will organise training programmes for the vendors to maintain high level of hygiene, quality, and hospitality in every food street. Apart from the outlets for Indian traditional dishes, the food street will certainly offer foreign dishes too. Food streets will be world-class in all aspects. It will be on the lines of those in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok or Shanghai — offering traditional cuisine to both domestic and overseas visitors in a clean and agreeable environment.
"Every major city will have food streets. Total hygiene will be maintained. It will not only boost tourism, but also generate jobs for the local population," says Minister of Food Processing Industries Subodh Kant Sahai.
The ministry proposes to invest Rs.50 million in developing every food street all over India, and expects similar participation from the private players, local bodies and the state governments.
