FSSAI stands for Food Safety and Standards Authority of India.

This autonomous body is set up under the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India. It is responsible for the monitoring and governance of food business in India. It makes sure that the food products undergo robust quality checks to eliminate food adulteration and the sale of substandard products. It registers and licenses the Food Business Operator(FBO) in India, by laying down the rules and regulations to operate a food business in India.

Importance Of FSSAI Registration
Food Business Operators involved in the manufacturing, storage, processing, distribution, and sale of food products must compulsorily obtain the FSSAI license/registration.

It should be made clear that FSSAI License and FSSAI Registration are not the same. Based on the nature and size of the business, the necessary license or registration should be obtained by the FBO. It is nothing but a 14-digit license or registration number which the food packages have printed on them. This number provides details of the assembling state with the producer’s permit. It is aimed at creating accountability to sustain the quality of the food products.
