FSSAI stands for Food Safety and Standards Authority of India. FSSAI license is mandatory before starting any food business. All the manufacturers, traders, restaurants who are embroiled in food business must obtain a 14-digit registration or a license number which must be printed on food packages. This step is taken by government’s food licensing & registration system to ensure that food products undergo certain quality checks, thereby reducing the instances of adulteration, substandard products and improve accountability of manufacturers by issuing food service license.
The 14-digit number caters information about the manufacturer’s license or registration details and the manufacturing state which will be called as fssai no.
