The Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI) in collaboration with the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) conducted a Food Safety Supervisory Training in Advance Catering (FoSTaC) programme on 25th July 2022 at the D Y Patil School Of Hospitality & Tourism Studies. Post the lifting of the COVID-induced restrictions earlier this year; this was the first physical programme that otherwise had been only conducted online. The session was conducted by Mr. Praveen Andrews and was attended by 40 hospitality professionals.
“The session was a good change after almost three years of break in the physical format of the training. HRAWI has been organizing FSSAI’s FoSTaC programmes with the objective of equipping professionals to meet international standards in hospitality as required by the FSSAI. The programme trains professionals on all the basic principle rules of hygiene and other essential functions that are a norm across the world. We are happy to have been able to resume the physical format of the programme and plan to gradually hold more such sessions. We urge hospitality establishments to enrol their staff for the upcoming programme if they haven’t already,” says Mr Sherry Bhatia, President, HRAWI.
HRAWI has successfully trained and certified 2292 hospitality professionals all across India’s Western region in FoSTaC and FSSAI’s Management Training Program.
