Ilsur Metshin showed bloggers the factory for school meals preparation
Today, the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin personally
conducted a tour for Kazan bloggers and journalists at the factory of the
Department of food and social nutrition. Every day food is prepared here for
all Kazan schools. “Any complain and criticism helps us in our work. We should jointly
bring order in every school”, - he said to the guests, among them were many
parents of schoolchildren.
“One of the main branches of the municipal economy is
school nutrition and health protection. Since we established the Department in
2006, our motto has not changed: children can study differently, dress
differently, play sports, but at least at school they should eat equally well”,
- Ilsur Metshin emphasized.
The Department of food and social nutrition serves not
only schools and kindergartens, but also nine hospitals of the republic and some
Bloggers and journalists were acquainted with the loading
area, warehouses, as well as some workshops. Director General of the Department

were installed in the food preparation room.
80 school canteens received additionally 550 items of
inventory and equipment, and 76 schools purchased new equipment. All Kazan
school canteens received new sets of dishes and tableware. New uniform was
purchased for employees of all canteens.
During the press tour, special attention was paid to
the laboratory equipped with the most modern equipment. It provides bacteriological
control of imported products to the plant.
The participants of the tour were very interested in
the cooking line with dishes from the school menu. “This is a showroom, this is
regular school meal for children”, - Ilsur Metshin added. The participants of
the tour could try first and second courses, salads, drinks and pastries.
“Of course, there are issues that need to be solved –the
Mayor said and reminded how the issue with the quality of cutlets in city
schools was resolved. – We responded in time, developed food quality control. We
found flaws in the recipe. However, we need feedback, we need your help, and
dialogue is important in this important big work. Everything we do should work
for decades. This is our common task and responsibility. After all, at least
60% of the daily diet of children should get a healthy food”.
During the press tour, almost every participant of the
meeting received questions from Instagram followers. Among the most frequent –
how to ensure a common quality of school meals.

parental control books for a feedback. The Mayor of Kazan made a proposal to

instructed the head of the Department of education to coordinate this
possibility with the Russian Agency for Health and Consumer Rights and school directors.
