Delhi: FSSAI (Food Safety Standards Association of India) has named Anand Vihar Terminal Railway station (ANVT) as the first ‘5-star Eat Right Station’.
Through this, the station is assured of maintaining not just cleanliness but also providing hygiene, nutrition, and diet. The food outlets there serve quality food items at affordable prices in the premises. The Anand Vihar Terminal station, which is maintained by Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Limited (IRSDC), has been declared as the first ‘Eat Right Station’ of the Northern Railway with an audit score of more than 92 per cent in the ‘exemplary’ category by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
ANVT has become the third railway station in India after Mumbai Central Railway Station (BCT) and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) to get such a tag. However, the rating of 92.08 per cent of Anand Vihar Terminal Railway station is the highest ever in Indian Railways, according to IRSDC and FSSAI. Certain aspects such as personal hygiene, training, operations control, maintenance and sanitation, availability of healthy, fortified, local and seasonal food and food waste management were monitored. HUL was selected as an implementation partner and RIR certification as auditors.
“Our partnership with Indian Railways, particularly with IRSDC is really applauding and I must place on record their efforts towards implementation of this unique concept”, – Smt. Rita Teaotia, Chairperson, FSSAI while addressing the media.
