The government aims to deliver good-quality ‘Prasadam’ to devotees. In the first phase, four coastal temples have been selected, with the number expected to rise in the coming days. The members of the committee will keep a close eye on the products used in the Prasadam, as well as how they are stored and processed. They will also suggest on which products should not be included in the Prasadam.

Through the Bhog programme, the FSSAI will provide temples with quality inspection services. According to Dr. Premananda, District Food Security Officer, Udupi, four temples have been chosen for this purpose.
