Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) is a license that is mandatory before commencing any food business. The Indian Food Industry is witnessing a dynamic growth in recent times due to globalization. It has become one of the leading markets for a chain of restaurants and outlets that offer a variety of cuisines across the globe.
All traders, manufacturers, and restaurants who are involved in the food business must and should obtain a 14-digit registration or a license number which must be displayed on the food packages. This step was taken by the government to ensure that food products undergo a strict quality check in order to reduce the chances of adulteration and the use of substandard products.

WHO REQUIRES A FOOD LICENSE?
FOOD BUSINESS OPERATOR (FBO)
License / registration with FSSAI is mandatory for every Food Business Operator (FBO). Whether a FBO requires a License or registration depends upon the factors like capacity of production/ handling etc. , nature of food business activities and area of operation. Before making an application to the authority FBO must undergo the eligibility search to understand whether it needs registration or license (State License/Central License)
IMPORTER OF FOOD
Every person who is an importer has to apply for a central license at their address which has been registered with DGFT while obtaining Import Export Code. A food business carrying on business at different location needs to apply for separate license for each location. Thus each location will be issued a separate license except transporter where one license will be issued for all the vehicles of a single transporter/ business.
CENTRAL FOOD LICENCE
In case an Food Business Operator is operating in more than two states, it has to obtain one additional central License for the Head Office/ Registered Office and separate license for each location , which will again depend upon the factors like capacity of production/ handling etc. , nature of food business activities and area of operation.To do the eligibility search contact us.
