Madhya Pradesh Tourism Hotels will now maintain separate kitchens for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food preparations.


Madhya Pradesh Tourism has announced that its hotels will now have separate kitchen facilities for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. This decision comes after former BJP MP Raghunandan Sharma wrote a letter to Tourism and Culture Minister Usha Thakur, requesting a ban on the preparation and storage of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food together. In response to the request, the tourism corporation has issued an order instructing all its units to adhere to the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) standards by keeping freezer, deep-freezer, knife, chopping board, and other items separate.

Usha Thakur, the Tourism and Culture Minister, emphasized the importance of food in relation to mental and physical well-being and stated that the instructions will be strictly implemented across all 70 hotels of the MPT in the state. The objective is to serve nutritious and sattvic food to all tourists.

Raghunandan Sharma expressed gratitude to Minister Usha Thakur for accepting his request and promptly issuing the order, while the Jain Samaj of Neemuch also extended their appreciation to Sharma for his proactive approach to the issue.
