FSSAI and FSSAI License

FSSAI, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, issues a FSSAI registration to  Food Business Operators (FBOs). FSSAI license is basically a 14-digit license number along with the FSSAI Logo imprinted on food items produced by a particular FBO. Check out: How to Check FSSAI License Number Online. The food license, however, is issued only to those FBOs who are in compliance with the standards and regulations as specified in the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006. FSSAI basically makes sure that safe food handling, manufacturing as well as storage facilities are being deployed by Food businesses. They also ensure that the food being is produced is safe for the consumption of their buyers. In order to acquire the license online, you have to register yourself and create a FSSAI Login online.
