Overview of FSSAI Registration

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.

Registration Process

  4. Submit the application and fees: The completed application form and required documents must be submitted to the FSSAI along with the appropriate fees based on the type of registration.
  5. Wait for inspection and approval: Once the application is received, the FSSAI will conduct an inspection of the food business to ensure compliance with food safety regulations and standards. If everything is in order, the FSSAI will issue the registration certificate.
  6. Display the FSSAI logo: After obtaining the FSSAI registration, the food business can display the FSSAI logo on their products, which indicates that they have obtained the necessary license and are committed to providing safe and high-quality food products to consumers.

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!
