The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has established a department called the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, which is the full meaning of FSSAI. It is the authority that monitors the nutritional content and also protects consumers from the consumption of toxic or hazardous food. This not only involves preparing food but everyone who handles food at various stages before it ultimately reaches the customer like raw materials, manufacturing, processing, packing and distribution as well as the agencies who have authority to sell them.
Any individual or an entity proposing to begin with a food business must obtain a food registration or a license from the Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI).
There are mainly 3 types of FSSAI License:
This Business License is required by slow or low turnover restaurants with annual revenue of less than 12 lakh for 1 year. This registration is issued by the government of a particular state.
This Business License requires an annual turnover of 12 lakh to 20 crores for a period of 1 to 5 years minimum and maximum respectively. Mostly small to mid-sized restaurants are eligible for FSSAI state licenses. This license is issued to the party of a particular state where the concerned party wishes to open a restaurant. The significant point that lies here is the party who wants to open a restaurant must be effective in a single state.
The Food Business Operators (FBOs) need a Central Food License furnished by the Central Government. The license works for more than a month only having an annual turnover of more than 20 crores. Which remains valid for 5 years and the license is applied to the central office covering all the offices across India.
