What is FSSAI?

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is an autonomous body constituted under the Government of India's Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.

The FSSAI has introduced a law to regulate the process of food production, distribution, storage, import, and sale, as well as the availability of safety for human consumption. Under the act, each food business owner will have to obtain a food license to sell food that is safe for consumption.

What is the FSSAI License?

An FSSAI license is the single most important license required for food business operators in India. All qualifying food operators, such as producers, transporters, distributors, retailers, etc., are also required to have an FSSAI license prior to business startup. But, you don't just need to get an FSSAI license, in addition, it's equally necessary to renew your license from time to time.

The validity of an FSSAI license varies from 1 to 5 years, which depends on how many years the food operator wants the license. And the cost increases with the number of years that it is issued. Therefore, as per the FSSAI guidelines, you will have to apply for the license to be renewed within 30 days of the expiry of the existing one.
