In India, every food business operator (FBO) must obtain a licence from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). The food licence assures that the food business operator is providing consumers with high-quality food. When the essential criteria are met, the FSSAI has developed a complete system of licencing and registration. Renewal is required if you wish to keep operating your food business lawfully and in accordance with the FSSAI requirements. The licence is valid for a set amount of time, which can range from one to five years.
