As the National Food Regulator, FSSAI rolled out the Eat Right Campus initiative aiming to enable various campus canteens/cafeterias of offices, schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, etc. Under this, campuses are provided with a five-star rating certificate based on food safety & hygiene standards they maintain.
Any FSSAI licensed institution with defined premises and food handling activities managed by the campus establishment and/or run by third parties can apply to become a certified Eat Right Campus.
More than 400 million people in India spend the majority of their time at workplaces, consuming at least one meal in the office cafeterias/canteens.
A healthy diet is a vital contributor to human health & productivity. This makes it important for workplaces to be more conscious and mindful of their food handling premises and ensure the availability of safe food and a healthy diet for their employees.
Getting Workplace Kitchens/Cafeterias/Canteens audited and certified under the Eat Right Campus Initiative will provide unique opportunities to a workplace to showcase their efforts around employee health and well-being. This will also help in setting examples for the rest of the industry about noble practices that need to be followed by corporates for employee engagement and well-being.
