Shortcuts in food preparation
Friends,many restaurants and street vendor take short cuts in food preparation which leads to consumption of increased preservatives and additives by us.
Can we become more aware about such shortcuts taken. Then may be we can be more careful about what we we order and what we dont.
In comments I could not find any short cuts used by food vendors. more
We cannot bring in strictness in the society. But the Govt can regulate things keeping in view various factors such as adulteration. One such rule may be that all vendors are required to be registered under FSSAI and that their registration number must be prominently placed in front of the shop. FSSAI should mandate certain requirements such as the timing of the vending operations, list of items that the vendor deals with, total number of such items in stock that updates as sales progress, etc.. For example, if a person approaching a tea shop near a roadside he can very much see the vendor's FSSAI registration number, list of items that the vendor deals with and items that are readily available with him. For example: FSSAI Registration No.: XXXXXXX, Item inventory: Tea 50/40 Nos., coffee 25/10 Nos., Bada - 50/50 Nos., Masala Vada - 50/45 Nos, etc. This indicates that the vendor has a capacity to sell 50 number of teas of which 40 number of teas have already been sold and that 10 number of tea are currently available with him. This will reflect transparency in the vendor's deal. This doesn't require a five-year plan in any way. Thanks more
Govt should strictly ban street vendors.If they are allowed,people will eat due to various reasons like saving time by going to restaurant or because it is cheaper.They know the value of health only after it is lost.So it is Govts responsibility to safeguard peoples health for which it spends in crores! more
The issue is that street vendors are seen as illegally by govt. hence they cant be regulated.. Instead my suggestion is that mobile health inspectors that we have do sudden inspection on site for food being prepared and make a spot fine of 500 /1000 Rs if food is to found to be adulterated . This way there is no issue of consumer court people earn their livelihood.. and they will be forced to maintain at least some standard how tro prevent bribery in this case is a different thought if this can be made fool proof i guess it works more
"street vended" food is not good for health - everyone know, but it is compulsion to have it. Try to avoid as possible. more
