The food regulator in India, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has launched a national campaign to give training to street food vendors for improving their hygiene practices and safety standards. However, suitable facility/ equipment are equally important for preparation and vending of safe and hygienic food. Keeping this in mind Kakinada took initiative to improve street food-vending facility in the city. Under the initiative, modern food-vending carts were procured for street eateries. These carts were rovided to food vendors from economically weaker section of the society by arrangement of bank loans.
