NOTE: This Unit group includes vendors from street and market stalls of a variety of prepared meals and food items for immediate consumption. Vendors in streets and public places of food and beverages for immediate consumption from pushcarts, trucks, trays or baskets are classified in unit group 5212, Street Food Salespersons. Vendors from street and market stalls of fresh food products not intended for immediate consumption (such as fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy products) are classified in Unit group 5211 Stall and Market Salespersons. Vendors in streets and public places of non-food items (or of pre-packaged non-perishable food items such as confectionary) from pushcarts, trucks, trays or baskets are classified in unit group 8521, Street Vendors (excluding food). Workers who prepare simple food items for immediate consumption, such as hamburger cooks, but have limited direct contact with clients, are classified in Unit group 8411, Fast Food Preparers. The aim of separately identifying vendors of food items for immediate consumption is to ensure that jobs that require skills in service, basic preparation and hygienic handling of food are visible. Food service counter attendants generally serve a wider range of more elaborate products and meals than street food salespersons and do not generally transport or carry food on hand carts or in baskets.
