“Know what you eat, no matter what you eat”, says Sattvik Council of India on National Consumer Rights Day 2021

This National Consumer Rights Day, the Sattvik Council of India is not just stressing the impact our food has on our body, but also the environment. The Sattvik team firmly believes that you should “Know what you eat, no matter what you eat”, and this isn’t just restricted to vegetarian food but inclusive of all lifestyles and diet preferences.

Lately, due to how accessible short-form content is about diets, the team has observed a new culture when it comes to fad diets and the lack of research that goes into said diets. This is just an example of how, often, people do not completely research what they consume. The Sattvik Council believes that research and how information is disseminated is a basic right and they’re making it easier to give access to this knowledge.

The Sattvik Council of India helps certify establishments with a vegetarian certificate. This certificate not only ensures that the food that they’re making is vegetarian, but the environment they’re making it in is 100% vegetarian friendly. Factors such as hygiene, where the utensils are being washed, if it shares a common space with non-veg food, and so on are big tell-tale signs of a place being Sattvik approved. They mainly do this because if people choose to eat vegetarian food, they should have the assurance that it is vegetarian in every sense of the word.

Additionally, they also want to emphasize that our food consumption habits can have a major effect on the environment. Eating vegetarian food is good for the environment and can reduce our carbon footprint by leaps and bounds. This is why, by certifying an establishment as vegetarian, they also hope to spread awareness about conservation amongst restaurant-goers.

Abhishek Biswas, founder of Sattvik Council of India says, “No matter what food people eat, they should know what goes into making it and how that food has further contributions to our body and the world. We hope that people exercise their rights to choice and information by being more aware.”
