Abstract


This paper seeks to uncover hygienic practices of street food vendors in Harare, Zimbabwe. Questionnaires comprising of structured and unstructured questions were used for gathering data. Purposive sampling was used to select the sample size. Data was analyzed using simple graphs and pie charts. Amongst other findings, the study revealed that most street food vendors in Harare have not received any formal training in food preparation and handling and that the street food vending business is women dominated. Amongst other recommendations, we advise the government of Zimbabwe to provide low cost training to street food vendors in order to help them exercise standard food preparation and handling practices.
