    Did you know?

    Food Business Operators in the country have to be licensed/registered under the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India as per Section 31(1) & 31(2) of the FSS Act, 2006. Food Safety & Standards (Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses) Regulations, 2011 regulate licensing and registration. Petty food manufacturers can register. That means petty retailers, hawkers, itinerant vendors, temporary stall holders, or small or cottage businesses with annual turnovers up to ₹12 lacs. A license is required for all food businesses with income over this limit.

      Food Business Operators (PAN-India) will continue receiving Consumer Grievances and will respond to these promptly at FLRS only. Until FoSCoS develops an upgraded version of the Consumer Grievance Module, FBOs and Authorities regularly visit FLRS for this module.
