Dr V Pasupathy, Mr Stephen Dsouza – Cluster General Manager, Mr Abdul Wahab Kazi – F&B Services Manager, Chef Meraj Ansari – Executive Chef and Mr Hemanshu Chauhan – Assistant Secretary General inaugurated the training programme. Over the years, HRAWI has successfully trained and certified 2397 hospitality professionals across India’s Western region in FoSTaC and FSSAI’s Management Training Program.
“The programme was insightful and participants were brought up to speed on a lot of new industry practices. There has been tremendous progress over the last few years with the FoSTaC programmes and we are glad that the participation from hospitality establishments has been witnessing a gradual increase. FSSAI’s training programmes are a big value-add to all hospitality professionals since it prioritizes education in food safety and handling SOPs. HRAWI will continue to organize the programmes as often as it can,” says Mr Pradeep Shetty, President, HRAWI.
