Food License Registration certificate is required to run a food product business from Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) to manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import of food products to ensure availability of safe and wholesome food for human consumption. Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 aims to establish a single reference point for all matters relating to food safety and standards, by moving from multi- level, multi- departmental control to a single line of command. The Act establishes an independent statutory Authority “the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India” (FSSAI). Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India is the Administrative Ministry for the implementation of FSSAI.
