Pawan Kumar Agarwal, chief executive officer, FSSAI, said, “FSSAI is happy to partner with NASVI for the eighth edition of the National Street Food Festival. This year, we are leveraging the festival to spread the message about food safety awareness and promoting fortified food across the country.”

“We are also using this platform for outreach on seven key initiatives around safe and nutritious food in the country,” he added.

Discussing the highlights of the event, Arbind Singh, national coordinator, NASVI, said, “In its eighth edition, the National Street Food Festival has succeeded in advocating space for street vendors in Indian cities and also driving home to the vendors the need and benefits of serving hygienic and safe food.”

“Coupled with fun and entertainment, it has become one of the signature events of Delhi. NASVI feels honoured to have FSSAI as a co-organiser, and hopes this partnership will lead to the pan-India replication of the event,” he added.
