“Black Day” For Kerala Restaurants on Aug 2

Restaurants and bakeries under the Kerala Samsthana Vyapari Vyavasayi Samithi (KSVVS) will observe Black Day on August 2. The food businesses, restaurant and bakery workers in Thiruvananthapuram will wear black badges to protest the raids conducted by the Food Safety Department (FSD). V Pappachan, Secretary of KSVVS, said that, although they understood the importance of, and were open to, hygiene checks by the FSD, they felt that extensive raids by the department, with the media tagging along, gave public the impression that restaurants in the city do not observe hygiene and sanitation. Following a raid carried out over the weekend, the Food Safety Commissionerate shut down three restaurants in Thiruvananthapuram, according to reports.
