Swiggy has partnered with the Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry (MoHUA) to enable street vendors to go online. As part of the partnership, Swiggy will be onboarding street food vendors on its platform, giving them online access to its consumers and help these vendors grow their businesses.
“The street vendors will be helped with PAN and FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) registration, training on technology/ partner app usage, menu digitisation and pricing, hygiene and packaging best practices. Upon the successful completion of the pilot, MoHUA and Swiggy plan to expand this initiative across the country in phases,” said the statement.
According to the Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry (MoHUA), in the pilot phase, Swiggy will be on-boarding 250 street food vendors in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Indore and Varanasi. Later, it will be rolled out in other parts of the country.
