Description :
In urban India street food contributes considerably to the food security of the poor and lower middle class strata. Furthermore roadside vending and hawking provides income-opportunities for a large number of low-skilled city dwellers. In the emerging mega city of Hyderabad the street vendors increasingly feel the strain of urban renewal practices due to economic liberalisation and globalisation processes. This article starts by providing an overview on recent trends in the metropolitan food system of Hyderabad, giving particular consideration to new suppliers, changing food consumption patterns among the urban middle classes and the food situation of the poor, which is still unsatisfactory. The main part provides an empirical evidence-based insight into the dimensions, structures, problems and conflicts of Hyderabad´s street food vending sector. - (IfL)
