A food business operator license is required for all Food Business Operators in the country. The rules for FSSAI Registration for Food Businesses are laid out in the FSSAI Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses Regulation, 2011. As per the FSSAI Food Business Regulation Act, only petty food manufacturers are allowed to start a food business without FSSAI registration. Petty Food Manufacturer means any food manufacturer, who (a) manufactures or sells any article of food himself or a petty retailer, hawker, itinerant vendor or temporary stall holder; or distributes foods including in any religious or social gathering except a caterer. All other persons wishing to start a food business must possess an FSSAI registration before starting the business.
FSSAI food product approval is required for any food product which contains ingredients or additives that are not as per the FSSAI standards. Therefore, food products for which no standards have been specified by the FSSAI required FSSAI food product approval. FSSAI registration for food products must mainly be obtained by food product manufacturers or food product importers.
I registration for Food Businesses can be obtained through the FSSAI Food Licensing & Registration System. FSSAI registration for food business falls under one of three categories:
• Central License
• State License
Food business operators like 100% Export Oriented Units, large manufacturers, importers, food business operators in Central Government Agencies, airport, seaport, etc., need to obtain FSSAI registration from central government.
Food business operators like small to medium sized manufacturing units, storage, transporters, retailers, marketers, distributors, etc., need to take FSSAI registration from state government.
Food business operators who are petty food manufacturers can obtain registration under this scheme from the state government by submitting minimal documents.

2. Proof of possession of premises (Rental Agreement / Utility Bill)
3. Partnership Deed / Certificate of Incorporation / Articles of Association / Memorandum of Association
4. List of food products manufactures or processed or stored
