24/09/2022 at 8:02 PM


Bhubaneswar, Sep 24: As part of its programme for the promotion of millets, Odisha Millet Mission (OMM) has collaborated with BOCCA Cafe, Bhubaneswar to promote Millets as a nutritional alternative amongst the youth and to showcase the many dishes that can be crafted from Bajra, Jowar, Mandia and other millets.

The event took place at BOCCA Cafe, Master Canteen.

Odisha Millet Mission is a flagship programme of the government of Odisha launched in 2017 to improve nutrition at the household level through the revival of millets in farms and on plates of tribal communities in Odisha. This first-of-its-kind agricultural initiative to encourage the cultivation of nutrition-rich millets goes beyond bringing the traditional food of Odisha’s tribes back on plates.

BOCCA worked with OMM and has come out with an exclusive millets-based menu which was launched in the event. The menu was curate by the chefs at BOCCA and experts of Odisha Millets Mission. The idea was to create continental/ Mexican/ bakery dishes which will give millets a more up market identity, helping the current generation consume it and in the process help the farmers.

Dr. Arabinda Kumar Padhee, Principal Secretary of the Agriculture and Farmers’ Empowerment Department graced the event as the chief guest. He interacted with the RAO members present and encouraged them to add Millets based dishes in their menu, which they readily accepted.

The event was graced by Odia celebrity Satyabrata Kuna Tripathy, board members of Restaurant Association Odisha (RAO), owners of Michael’s Kitchen, Dawat, Odisha Hotel, Green Chillyz and Prangan (Mango Hotels) and Co-founders of BOCCA Cafe, Sameer Hans and Satyabrata Sanu Ratho. The event ended successfully.
