The government has taken some very crucial steps in order to check the misuse of antibiotics in the poultry industry. A Mumbai-based Suvarna Kokan Foundation recently made an effort to aid government's initiative. The Suvarna Kokan Food Mall is India's only destination for nutritional and hygienic chicken produced directly from farmers across Maharashtra to check the malpractices in poultry trade and also to provide employment through this sector and to increase the economy of our country by setting up micro-businesses to aid the urban youth.
The Bombay high court commanded the government of Maharashtra in March 2018 to aware people regarding the drawbacks of using pesticides and also about the habits they must follow to maintain food safety.
According to Satish Parab, the founder of Suvarna Konkan Foundation, "In a yet another mass campaign, we are all set to open 100 stores of Suvarna KokanFood Mall, a one stop solution for nutritional, hygienic chicken sourced directly from the farmers. The campaign is very hyperlocal; we want to be present at every station across the city in the next 2 months. Here, we focus on hygiene, best breed and training of the staff. The staff is encouraged to use alternative antibiotic-free growth promoters such as herbal supplements, permitted probiotics and better farm management practices."
Parab also added, "In the first phase, around 20 such outlets have already been operational at Dadar, Mulund, Dombivali, Ghatkopar, Kurla, Navi Mumbai and more. The stores will also stock Konkan specialities like masalas, kokum concentrate, cashew nuts etc. in select outlets."
We wish the Suvarna Konkan Foundation, good luck with the success of their initiative.
