All food business operators. Including Manufacturer, wholesalers, distributors, farmer, market & supplier are required to get an fssai according to their turnover.
There are 3 types of fssai license:—
- Basic Registration
For business whose turnover is less then 12 lakhs. This license is generally used by small restaurants and food vendors. As this is just a registration and not a license.
2. State license
For business whose turnover is more then 12 lakhs and less then 20 crores. This license is generally used by small and medium FBO. Also if you’ve office in more then one state then you’ll have to take central license.
3. Central license
For business whose turnover is more then 20 crores. This license is generally issued to big FBO. As the manufacturing facility has to comply with the fssai schedule 4. And also if you’re doing online ecommerce business then ecommerce central license is mandatory. Irrespective of your turnover.
Inspection only happens in state and central license. In basic registration the license is automatically generated in 3–7 working days.
Applying for an fssai license is a very tedious task. As they require a lot of documents which generally most of the food business operator does not have. For example for State and central license you’ll have procure water analysis report, fsms plan & certificate, layout of the factory and few more.
So it’s better to apply your license by a professional. As the chance of rejection is very high if you apply it yourself. And they never refund the govt. Fee. This is a policy of fssai dept. So for saving few bucks you might loose all the money.
