A detailed presentation was given by Assistant commissioner Food safety, Hilal Ahmad Mir regarding the activities that are to be undertaken under this program.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The officers in the meeting were informed that District Srinagar has been nominated for implementation of Eat Right challenge and funds have also been released for carrying out different activities under this challenge. The activities include both regulatory as well as awareness to Food Business Operators with the sole motive to ensure safe and wholesome food to consumers.
