Centralised Kitchens

Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 2011-03-14 11:05

A centralised model is one where all the cooking activities of a particular location are concentrated within one large kitchen.

Each Akshaya Patra centralised kitchen has the capacity to cook between 50 000 to 150 000 meals daily thus achieving economies of scale. Cooking takes place in mechanised, steam heated cauldrons custom built to reduce the cook to consume time.

Mechanization has also helped us meet the highest standards of hygiene by minimizing human handling of food. Freshly cooked food is packed in stainless steel containers and transported to various schools in custom built vehicles (about 10 to 15 schools per vehicle). Security personnel escort each vehicle to ensure safe delivery of meals. There are two types of menus prepared throughout the country: North Indian and South Indian. The North Indian menu consists of three items: roti, sabji and rice  while the South Indian menu also consists of  rice, sambar and curd.
