One of the basic conditions after registering a business item is to obtain Government License / Permits. In situation, you are into food business e.g itinerant vendor, hawker, temporary stallholder; food publisher in any ethical or group gathering events except a caterer, or by any way compared to production, shipping, storage or distribution of food product or tiny food business, one must obtain an FSSAI Registration or FSSAI License before starting operations.

It is compulsory by the FSSAI department for every large food business director in India to get a FSSAI Central license to drive their business in India. There are many reasons for the FSSAI Licence Registration:

  • FSSAI controls for the food license of FBO on a casual basis and demands stringent actions over those businesses whose licenses have died or businesses that donít have an FSSAI license.
  • There is a large level of customer belief in the safety and variety of food so it has been more necessary to maintain that trust of the public. So licensing is an essential factor, to hold that trust.
  • It supports to further change in food products- modifications are always welcome. To hold the trust of user FBO must print a 14-digit FSSAI License number on their food packages.
  • Central Licencing increases trade without hazarding customer protection and a bigger share.
  • Central FSSAI Licence confirms the food products to sustain quality checks by decreasing the food corruption and sale of sub-standard products.
