What is FSSAI registration in India?

Registration as FSSAI is the process by which food businesses/operators (FBOs) in India get a 14-digit registration number from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). Registration is a mandatory requirement for all FBOs as per the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, and the Food Safety and Standards (Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses) Regulations, 2011.

The FSSAI registration process is per the size and revenue of the food industry. There are three types of FSSAI registrations:

 

    • FSSAI Basic Registration (Form A): For FBOs which have an annual turnover of less than Rs 12 lakhs.
    • FSSAI State License (Form B): For FBOs having an annual turnover of Rs 12 lakh to Rs 20 crore.
    • FSSAI Central License (Form B): For FBOs having annual turnover of more than Rs 20 crores, operating in more than one state or involved in exports or imports.

What are the benefits of FSSAI registration

Having an FSSAI registration makes a lot of sense for food business operators as it allows adherence to legal rules, creates trust among consumers and gives a hand in business expansion. Let’s explore these benefits in more detail:

Legal compliance

FSSAI registration is mandatory for all food business operators across India that strictly follows the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006. The seal of an FSSAI registration shows not only the adherence with the Act but also the regulations that accompany it. As such, these regulations are not only meant to avoid legal consequences but also create an impression that your business is credible and professional in the food sector.

Consumer trust

The FSSAI registration number shown on your food packs, logos, or premises will build consumer confidence. This will reassure them that your food business is highly compliant with the national food safety and quality standards. This trust factor is a strong determinant of consumer behavior and often results in brand loyalty with good product reviews, among other things.

Business growth

FSSAI registration is one of the steps for you to take to grow your food business. It helps you get in the loop of supplying food products to the big actors, like supermarkets, hotels and restaurants, that usually ask for official FSSAI registration from their vendors as a prerequisite. Apart from this, an FSSAI registration is considered to be an initial step in contracting and tendering food supplies to the government. Furthermore, the FSSAI registration is vital as it helps companies to reach the market requirements of foreign countries in which they want to export food products.

Improved food safety

The FSSAI registration process ensures that your food business meets all the criteria of good manufacturing procedures (GMP) and hygiene standards. Through the implementation of mandatory food safety management systems, such as HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), your business can reduce the risk of foodborne illness, contamination, and other issues significantly. This not only values consumer health but also ensures that your business is legally protected and keeps from any reputational damage.
