Abstract


Approximately more than 400 street food vendors are serving foods in Jalgaon city. On an average 50 % population prefers food offered by street food vendors. This signifies the volume of street food vending business as well as volume of public health at risk due to the unhygienic practices adopted by them. The present study is undertaken to ascertain the hygienic practices adopted by street food vendors in Jalgaon city. Primary data is collected through structured questionnaire and observation method from 80 street food vendors. Analysis reveals that majority of street food vendors do not undertake hygienic food preparation habits. And lack of knowledge about hygienic practices is main reason behind it.
