For many people, dining out has become a habit which could pose an overall higher risk of exposure to germs and chemicals. 

From this situation, the Ministry of Public Health is now alerting consumers to the health and safety of the street food and flea market, as part of the new normal policy, and greater consumer confidence. 

Public Health Deputy Minister Satit Pitutacha launched a new normal food safety campaign to maintain hygienic practices at all stages of food preparation, cooking, serving, and selling.

In each district of each province, the campaign comes with an initial goal of one model street food vendor and one model flea market. 

These suppliers and markets will comply with health and hygiene measures, sell tasty dishes at affordable prices, have clear price tags and signage showing the name of the shop, or sell organic OTOP products from local communities; a function will also be the sale of local delicacies by salespeople in distinct local attire and local folk performances.

The MOPH hopes that this campaign will help promote customer confidence in food hygiene and quality help promote tourism to boost the economy of Thailand and help vendors develop food hygiene and safety standards. (NNT)
