Order Food in Train From 300+ Top Stations

Arranging good food on train journeys is a big challenge altogether. This challenge gets even complex when the journey is longer than a day or two. 

There are basically two ways to arrange food on a train. First, to sign up for the train pantry food service or IRCTC Food. And second, to eat whatever is available on the stations.

But there is a big problem with both options. With either option, the food you get is either unhygienic, over-priced, or forced. The intensity of these challenges varies from station to station. Some are better, some are worse.

In this blog, we’ll look at the fundamental problems with the food delivery options in trains and discuss a solution for it.

The problems with the regular food available in trains:

There are two ways to source food while on a train journey. The first is to sign up for the pantry food service or IRCTC, and the second is to purchase food from the platform vendors.

However, neither of the options is a good way by any means to get your meals. Here are some severe problems that make train food unsuitable for their consumers:

Lack of Hygiene

According to the Audit Reports | Comptroller and Auditor General of India, train foods are among the most unhygienically prepared and stored food items. 

Their audit found that the consumable items offered in the stations are full of contaminated foodstuff, recycled foodstuff, shelf life expired packaged and bottled items, unauthorized brands of water bottles, etc. (Paras 5.1 - 5.3)

Overpriced Food

To stay safe from these unhygienic station food, travelers choose the pantry-food options for their train journeys. Although the cleanliness of the pantry food is also questionable, the more significant problem with them is the pricing.

The meals available at the pantry services cost multiple times their actual costs, and the quality or taste absolutely fails to justify the price. 

These prices are the result of the cuts taken by the food and raw material contractors, who generally don’t abide by the prices set by IRCTC.

Lack of Variety

The menus of the pantry services are always fixed. And the maximum choice you get is to choose between vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. On top of that, they never offer any customization for those with allergies or aversion to certain ingredients.

This lack of customization is a big problem for those who are allergic, religiously averse, or hesitant to certain ingredients. For example, although the Jain community would like vegetarian food, they would never want any onion or garlic in their food.

This is why RailKafe offers a food customization option. Under this, the customer can instruct his chef regarding any ingredients he would like to be removed or included in his dish.

Furthermore, we have a separate division to cater food, especially for the Jain community and pure vegetarian customers.

How Railkafe solves the problem:
