What is FSSAI?

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is established to exercise the powers granted to, and to perform the functions assigned to, it under the Food Safety and Standards Act. It is called as the Food Authority. FSSAI is under the control of Government of India and Ministry of Health and Family Affair. The FSSAI has been established under the Food Safety and Security Act of 2006 that sets standards for food products based on science and regulates their production, storage, distribution, sales and imports to ensure they are safe for consumption. As per the Act, no person shall commence or carry on any food business except under a FSSAI license or FSSAI registration. Therefore, any food manufacturing or processing or packaging or distributing entity is now required to obtain a FSSAI License or Registration.
