Chandrabhan Prasad, a Dalit entrepreneur and adviser to the Dalit Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, has started an e-commerce food business under the name Dalit Foods.
Chandrabhan Prasad says it is a social experiment to find out whether there are any takers for Dalit food in India and if India has really transformed from a country where people thoroughly cleaned the kitchen if a Dalit even stepped into it to one in which people would buy food items knowing they are manufactured by Dalits.
The choice of the business name—Dalit Foods—holds significance. It is equivalent to making a political statement in a country where the Dalit has emerged as a political category.
