Salkara & Calicut Paragon restaurants awarded ‘Food safety awareness’ certificate by Dubai Municipality


Dubai Municipality as part of the food safety awareness campaign held under the banner ‘Food Safety is our Priority’ awarded a Certificate of Appreciation to Salkara & Calicut Paragon Restaurants. Announcing this in a press release Mr. Sumesh Govind, Managing Director said that it is indeed a great honour to get this certificate of appreciation from Mr. Khalid Mohammed Sharif Al-Awadi, Director of Food Control Department, Dubai Municipality. “The certificate is a fitting tribute to our commitment as we get ready to celebrate our 70th anniversary,” added Mr. Sumesh.
Founded in the year 1939 by Mr. P.M.Govinda, the restaurant has carved a special place in food lovers mind by serving the most authentic Malabar cuisine in Calicut and Dubai. “My grandfather was a perfectionist who strived for excellence and as the Managing Director it is my responsibility to continue the exemplary tradition set down by him. We strive to live by his philosophy by maintaining excellence and perfection. We take extreme care to follow the guidelines set ages back and this along with our vision, determination and dedication has helped us to firmly establish Paragon & Salkara Restaurant both in India and Dubai,” pointed out Mr. Sumesh.
While Paragon is noted for its multi cuisine, Salkara is well known for the authentic and exclusive Malabar cuisine. Even though there is a constant demand to franchise the outlets, Sumesh has taken the conscious decision not to do so. “It is difficult to maintain the standard of excellence that we are used to and we have decided to take our expansion plan in a phased manner. Only after ensuring that Paragon, Dubai that we opened in 2005 met the stringent needs of customers, we opened Salkara in 2008 at Qusais. We have now planned Paragon outlets in Sharjah and Abu Dhabi as well as in Kochi. We constantly strive to improve on taste, hygiene and service and we will ensure that we are worthy of the trust placed in us by our customers,” said Mr. Sumesh.
