Considering that food is both; one of the basic necessities and the source of pleasure in life, it is often seen as a profitable business venture by many. Consequently, several new food businesses crop up in India every year. As per the 2006 FSS Act (Food Safety and Standards Act), it is mandatory to get a FSSAI license before launching a new food business in India. FSSAI registration is a must for everyone operating in the food retail chain, at every stage, right from sourcing the ingredients locally or internationally (import) to manufacturing, cooking, packaging, testing, distribution, delivery, and final sale of food items in local or overseas locations (export).

FSSAI product approval is granted by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, an autonomous central government body operating under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. The body ensures that all food businesses and operators comply with the FSS Act, which necessitates that proper hygiene and checks are observed throughout the process to prevent food adulteration and sale of poor-quality, sub-standard food products to consumers. Food business operators fill the fssai registration form to obtain a fssai license number. It is unique for every business and displayed on the service provider’s products.
