Tourfed launches Hygienic Coffee Shops in the state

Hygienic Coffee Shops in the state

After making an impact in the travel and tourism industry in the State, the Co-operative Department led TOURFED is launching HYGIENIC COFFEE SHOPS throughout the state as an effort to provide as the name says clean, hygienic and safe food but at the same to provide economic opportunities for the differently abled / handicapped persons.

HYGIENIC COFFEE SHOPS are being established in major towns and important places in Kerala to provide economic opportunities to socially deprived and to ensure food safety and hygiene among the urban and semi urban population.

The prime motive is to address the challenges posed by the lack of hygiene and food-safety among the urban and semi-urban poor and providing solutions to turn those challenges into economic opportunities for the socially derived sections of the society . We develop and promote realistic strategies combining the best of market oriented business models and philanthropic perspectives to create better livelihood for the differently abled and economically weaker sections through micro enterprises that foster food- safety and hygiene.

Our project objective is to set up automated beverage (coffee , tea & soup) booth facilities in all major towns and important places of every district Kerala. This project will directly empower one thousand differently-abled and socially disadvantaged youths especially women with decent earnings. Further, this will provide with many more job openings indirectly.

This will provide better food safety and hygiene among the socially deprived. Studies have shown that lack of food safety and hygiene, is linked to the social deprivation of the urban and semi-urban poor. Problems arising from lack of food-safety and hygiene tend to affect the weaker sections more adversely .This may lead to Infectious diseases, loss of lives and quite often the loss of earning potential of the only breadwinner of the family. In an effort to address this problem we are planning to set up HYGIENIC COFFEE SHOPS through out Kerala with the active participation of District administrations. This endeavor which combines realistic business model with social commitment ensures steady revenue stream for the entrepreneur and goes on to promote better food safety and hygiene.
