how to register fssai food safety license

What is the FSSAI registration application?

FSSAI stands for Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, issues food safety standards, and carries on control over food quality by implementing various control for food business operators and issuing registration certificates and licenses.

What is FSSAI registration?

Registration for FSSAI is mandatory for certain food business operators and once the registration is completed the applicant will be issued with FSSAI certificate with FSSAI number.  This FSSAI certificate is valid for a period applied. The local food safety officer will inspect your premises and will issue FSSAI registration certificate or license as the case may be.

What is the difference between FSSAI registration and FSSAI license?

FSSAI registration is applicable where the annual turnover is less than or equal to 12,00,000 and other quantity restrictions apply. So in case when we start a new business, and we expect the turnover to be less than Rs.12,00,000 in a year we can proceed with basic food safety registration. However, when we expect our turnover to cross 12,00,000 in between the year it is recommended to apply for a FSSAI license directly without keeping in mind initial sales.
