NEW DELHI: With an aim to train street food vendors on cleanliness and hygiene, the National Association of Street Vendors of India (NASVI) recently organized a workshop in the city. Their training also included various aspects of food preservation techniques.
“We were already aware of the cleanliness aspect, but NASVI taught us how to present any food in the right way,” said Shyam Sundar, one of the street food vendors. NAVI also distributed I-cards among the registered street food vendors. The workshop was part of the National Street Food Festival that concluded on December 28.
When asked what they benefitted from this workshop, the vendors said it helped them increase their profits. “Now, when customers see us wearing gloves and aprons, they believe we serve better quality food than others,” said Satish, owner of Satish Snacks in Sarojini Nagar.
