FSSAI certification for cafeterias


The necessity of obtaining an FSSAI license for an industrial canteen cannot be understated, as it is a fundamental requirement for any establishment falling within the category of a food business. Whether you are contemplating the initiation of an industrial canteen venture or already managing one, securing an FSSAI License for Industrial Canteen is important. This article explains the important information you need to know about getting a License for an industrial canteen.

  • Industrial canteens are common in workplaces, providing a cheap and easy way for employees to get food.
  • But there are worries about the safety and cleanliness of the food they serve.
  • Since these canteens are often outdoors, they can get dirty from dust, trash, and bugs.
  • Also, they might not have the right setup to keep food safe and prepare it properly, which can lead to people getting sick from the food they eat there.
  • In response to these pressing concerns, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has instituted a comprehensive licensing system for canteens to safeguard the quality and safety of the food they offer.
  • Consequently, it is mandatory for all canteens, including those operating within industrial premises, to obtain the FSSAI license.

The types of FSSAI licenses required for canteens are contingent upon their annual turnover, classified as follows:

1. FSSAI Basic Registration – Canteens with an annual turnover below Rs. 12 lakh must obtain FSSAI Basic Registration.

2. FSSAI State License – Canteens with an annual turnover exceeding Rs. 12 lakh are mandated to procure the State License.

The process for securing an FSSAI Registration or License for a canteen situated within a given premises is outlined below:

1. Visit the Food Safety Compliance System (FoSCoS) website.

2. On the homepage, navigate to the “Apply/License Registration” option.

3. Select the state where the canteen is located from the dropdown menu.

4. Under the “Food Services” category, opt for “Club/Canteen” from the provided list.

5. Choose the appropriate turnover category and proceed by clicking the “Proceed” button.

6. On the subsequent page, you can choose between “Click here to apply for Registration for all businesses” or “Click here to apply for State License for all businesses.”

7. Complete the registration form by entering the requisite details, and then click “Save & Next.”

8. Upload the necessary documents, make the FSSAI registration fee payment, and submit the registration form.

9. The FSSAI authorities will review the submitted form and may conduct an inspection of the canteen’s premises if deemed necessary.

10. Upon satisfaction that the canteen aligns with the requisite criteria, the FSSAI authorities will issue the FSSAI Registration/License Certificate.

In conclusion,

In simple terms, getting an FSSAI License for an industrial canteen is super important. It makes sure the food there is safe to eat and clean. This helps keep customers healthy and makes the food service industry look good. Following these rules isn’t just a legal thing; it also makes people trust the canteen more.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
