Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), an Indian Railways PSU, has signed an MoU with Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) to get technology to provide hygienic food products and services to the train passengers, said an official statement.
Apart from these, the IRCTC and the CFTRI also agreed to finalise the list of products and services for which CFTRI would provide its technology to IRCTC, a PSU of Indian Railways.
Under the MoU, both the organisations would work together to meet the broad objectives of providing enhanced health, safety, diverse region-specific food products and extended shelf-life of identified food products for rail travellers.
The signatories also agreed to finalise the list of products and services for which CFTRI would provide its technology to IRCTC, a PSU of Indian Railways. Earlier, IRCTC had joined hands with government-owned Defence Food Research Laboratory for transfer of technology in the field of food and beverage processing and packaging that would upgrade its catering operations.
