TRRAIN Foundation gears up for the Food Industry

Hygiene Alert for all the food outlets across the country!!! All food outlets, from small dhabas to five-star hotels, will soon be graded according to their level of food hygiene and cleanliness.

Keeping up with the international standards, where they have a holistic process of ensuring food safety, FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) will be coming up with standards to grade food outlets. They could be graded as stars or as levels. The focus will be to see that they maintain food hygiene and safety so that consumers can make a wiser choice. Apart from cleanliness at the place of cooking, the authority will also lay down guidelines for clean storage and transport facilities.

This could mean that a dhaba in your neighbourhood could be rated as level-1 , if cooking practices measure up to the minimum standards laid down by the authority, while a fine dining restaurant may end up getting the top billing. It is also possible for restaurants belonging to the same chain to get different ratings.

And also to ensure that consumers are aware of the hygiene practices being followed, outlets will also have to get, and display, a certificate issued by the authority displayed.

Keeping in tune with this new regulation and to support the food industry by ensuring that all outlets adhere to standards, TRRAIN Retail Education program has designed a new module catering to ‘food hygiene and safety norms’. This module details out segments like:

  • The four stages of cleaning, cooking, chilling and cross contamination
  • Food safety – how to protect the food from getting contaminated and also prevent food-borne illness from different types of food
  • Food handling while Preparing, Thawing, Cooking, Serving, Leftovers, Refreezing, Cold Storage and Storing
  • Personal hygiene
  • Introduction to HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points)
  • HACCP implementation and analysis
This training is suitable for Quick service restaurants, Food courts & food catering associates. We would love to hear from you.
