In 1983 the report of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Safety, which was convened at WHO Headquarters in Geneva, identified both the importance and potential hazards of street-vended foods. Because of the possibility of microbiological, chemical and physical contamination, which conceivably could occur under street conditions.

Benefits of Street-Vended Foods
Street-vended foods provide:
· a source of inexpensive, convenient and often nutritious food for urban and rural poor;
· a source of attractive and varied food for tourists and the economically advantaged;
· a major source of income for a vast number of persons, particularly women; and
· a chance for self-employment and the opportunity to develop business skills with low capital investment.
According to WHO
In contrast to these potential benefits, it is also recognized that street-food vendors are often poor and uneducated and lack appreciation for safe food handling. Consequently, street foods are perceived to be a major public health risk. If a community is to have the full benefits of street-vended foods with minimal risk of foodborne disease, government intervention is required to ensure that the standard of safety for such foods is the best attainable in the context of the prevailing local situation.
· Lack of basic infrastructure and services, such as potable water supplies.
· Difficulty in controlling the large numbers of street food vending operations because of their diversity, mobility and temporary nature.
· Insufficient resources for inspection and laboratory analysis.
· General lack of factual knowledge about the microbiological status or the precise epidemiological significance of many street-vended foods.
· Poor knowledge of street vendors in basic food safety measures.
· Inadequate public awareness of hazards posed by certain street foods.
Street-vended foods may pose significant public health problems
Strategies for improving street food safety should be based upon studies of the local street food system and may include consideration of:
· Policy, regulation, registration and licenses;
· Infrastructure, services and vending unit design and construction;
· Training of food handlers; and
· Education of consumers.
HACCP-based studies will better focus strategies on essential safety requirements.
