Assam’s new ‘Healthy Food Streets’ to boost local economy and promote better hygiene

In a bid to stimulate the local economy and improve public hygiene, the northeastern state of Assam is set to launch four new healthy food streets across the region. This collaboration between the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs is aimed at promoting indigenous cuisine, attracting tourists, and fostering entrepreneurship while ensuring adherence to strict hygiene standards. Assam, known for its rich cultural heritage and gastronomic delights, has been working towards developing culinary tourism as a powerful tool for economic growth. With these new food streets, the state aims to provide a unique culinary experience to local and international visitors, spotlighting the diverse and scrumptious Assamese cuisine. Some of the other states that are going to get these ‘healthy food streets’ are Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra. Also, the other northeastern states such as Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, and Tripura will get one such street each.
