Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has introduced innumerable reforms towards ensuring hygienic and healthy foods to the consumer. Recently, some of the key reforms implemented in this direction, such as the food safety audit conducted in food manufacturing and restaurant premises across India, and the regular inspection of FSSAI registration and FSSAI license among the food business operations in India.

All the food businesses operator must obtain a food license or FSSAI registration online before commencing their business. The FSSAI license number has to be mentioned in the product and within the premises. An FSSAI License is valid up to next 5 years, after which, one has to renew the FSSAI License by providing necessary documents.

  5. 9th to 14th digits show the serial number of the food business operator, who is under a specific Registrar Officer. Each Registrar Officer can hold up to 10 lakh food businesses or serial numbers up to 999999.
