A survey was conducted on 100 consumers in the main streets of Guwahati city. The findings in the study showed that consumers prefer to eat street food due to their unique taste and flavour. The study also found out that majority of the consumers are aware about food safety and hygiene and almost 83% of the consumers have knowledge about food borne disease that occurs from unhygienic food.
