Fufu For Thought – Ghana

One of the fascinating aspects of urban social life in Ghana is the widespread presence of street food vendors. Operating from strategic locations at most hours of the day and night, they serve customers with tasty foods and colourful beverages at affordable prices.

Street vending is an activity that provides employment to many, while providing nutritious, inexpensive and ready-to-eat food to millions of workers. However, the informal nature of the industry sometimes allows for poor hygiene standards, making the consumption of street food a potentially hazardous source of nutrition, so projects have been introduced to improve the livelihoods of street food vendors and consumer health by increasing consumer and producer education on food safety.
