Food Safety & Standards Authority of India identifies strict hygiene, sanitation protocols

New Delhi: The Mysuru City Railway Station has been certified among 50 Railway Stations across the country as ‘Eat Right Stations’ by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).

The certification is a part of FSSAI’s initiative to ensure safe, hygienic and nutritious food options for millions of passengers who traverse the country’s vast railway network.

The certification results were released by the FSSAI on Thursday. The ‘Eat Right Station’ certification process involves rigorous audits of food vendors, training of food handlers, adherence to strict hygiene and sanitation protocols and efforts to raise awareness among individuals to make informed food choices. Stations that meet these stringent criteria are awarded the ‘Eat Right Station’ certification.

The other prominent stations that have been certified as “Eat Right stations” are the Railway Stations in New Delhi, Varanasi, Kolkata, Ujjain,  Ayodhya Cantt, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Kozhikode, Guwahati, Visakhapatnam, Bhubaneswar, Vadodara, Bhopal, Igatpuri, Delhi’s Anand Vihar Terminal and Chennai’s Puratchi Thalaivar M.G. Ramachandran Central Railway Station, among many others from different States.

Six pioneering metro stations nationwide have also joined the effort and have been accredited as ‘Eat Right Stations’. Among these are Metro Stations at Noida Sector 51, Esplanade (Kolkata), IIT Kanpur, Botanical Garden (Noida) and Noida Electronic City Metro Station.

This initiative also empowers food vendors at Railway Stations. By adhering to food safety and hygiene standards, they gain credibility and attract more customers, ultimately boosting their livelihoods, the FSSAI said.
