• Ministry of Health and Family welfare, in partnership with Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, (MoHUA) has proposed the development of 100 food streets in 100 districts across the country.
  • To be implemented as a pilot scheme, it aims to promote safe and healthy practices in the food industry, reduce food-borne illnesses, and improve overall health outcomes.
  • This initiative will support the “eat right campaign” and food safety and enhance the credibility of local food businesses.
  • The initiative will be implemented through the National Health Mission (NHM) in convergence with the MoHUA and with technical support from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
