OUR AWARD-WINNING ROTI MACHINE IN ACTION
DISHOOM LONDON VISITS AKSHAYA PATRA IN AHMEDABAD

AKSHAYA PATRA KITCHENS

Akshaya Patra currently operates 27 kitchens in 11 Indian states, providing employment opportunities to hundreds of local people. Most of our kitchens are large, state of the art, factory-like and what we call 'centralised', as they have the capacity to produce huge amounts of food every day. We utilise some amazing, high specification technology in our kitchens. For example, our roti machines are capable of producing 40,000 rotis an hour, our rice cauldrons can cook 120 kilograms of rice in 20 minutes – enough to feed 1,000 children, and we can cook 1,000 litres of dal in two hours – enough to feed 6,000 children.
25 of our kitchens are classed as centralised, and typically have the capacity to cook up to 100,000 meals a day. Our Hubli kitchen is the largest kitchen in the world, and can produce 185,000 meals a day. Our centralised kitchens are automated to ensure we meet strict standards of hygiene during the cooking process. We load the food into sterilised stainless steel containers which keep the food fresh and hot, and transport it to the schools in our customised delivery vans.
Our other two kitchens are known as 'decentralised' as they are in very remote areas, where the infrastructure and terrain make it difficult to set up a large kitchen. These kitchens are run by women who organise self-help groups with our support to supply thousands of children with nourishing food in the smallest of villages.
