The ‘Hospitality and Catering Industry Summit 2024’, a two-day conference organized by the Pune District Catering Association and the Federation of Corporate and Industrial Caterers, was inaugurated on Saturday, June 24, 2024, at 12 PM. Pramod Dahitule, Regional Director of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), Rupa Kanvinde, Kishore Sarpotdar of Poona Guest House, Sumer Singh, GS Bindra, head of Bindra Hospitality Catering, Suresh Mali, President of the Pune District Catering Association, and other dignitaries were present. The conference is being held at Shubharambh Lawn, D.P. Road, Mhatre Bridge, on June 24, 2024, from 11 AM to 3 PM, and on June 25 from 5 PM to 8 PM. Priyanka Suryavanshi provided the main guidance on the first day of the conference.

Discussions were held on necessary government permissions, regulations, entrepreneurship guidance, and issues facing the hospitality and catering industry. Suresh Mali, President of the Pune District Catering Association, welcomed the attendees. It was stated that every business should have at least one person who has undergone FOSTAC training (Food Safety Training and Certification). Supervisor training was conducted on the first day, covering information on dairy and dairy products, poultry, meat, fish, oil, packaged water, bakery, street food, catering, storage, production, and transportation.

Pramod Dahitule said, “Food safety is important for everyone’s health. We must provide customers with a safe food experience. It is essential to learn health and hygiene through training. Today’s customers are aware and want to see the preparation process. Maintaining customer trust is crucial. The main principle is to serve hot food hot and cold food cold. Continuous learning in this field, having necessary permits, and conducting audits are important. It is unprecedented for catering professionals to come together and receive training. This will create a trained workforce and advance the industry.”

Suresh Mali said, “Pune is the capital of hospitality. Everyone should maintain this reputation. All issues of catering professionals will be resolved at the government level. The challenges in the catering business are due to a lack of organization. Efforts will be made to solve all these issues.”
