Subject:- Providing quality food in Departmental Canteens functioning in Central Government Offices – regarding.
The undersigned is directed to draw attention of the Canteen Management Committees/Administration towards the quality of food being prepared in the canteens, functioning from the Central Government Offices, and to reiterate that the objective of setting up of canteens, as a measure of employee welfare, was to meet the refreshment needs of employees by preparing under hygienic conditions, tea/snacks, lunch etc. as per the local requirement/taste etc. of the beneficiaries. However, it has been reported that the quality of food, being prepared in the Departmental Canteens, is not of required quality/taste as compared to the private canteens being run parallelly in some Ministry’s/Department’s premises.
2. All the concerned authorities are requested to get the quality of eatables ensured by using branded/genuine products, and displaying the brand of raw-materials being used by the Canteens at a place to be noticed by all the beneficiaries.
