One of the essential licences required to open a restaurant is the FSSAI licence, also known as the food licence and obtained from the FSSAI (Food Safety and Standard Authority Of India). This licence is more than just a licence because it serves as both a licence and the authority’s consent. Customers are assured that the restaurant’s food complies with Indian food safety standards. This licence, which consists of a unique 14-digit registration number that must be displayed on food packaging, is required for producers, retailers, and eateries.
Why Are Fssai Registrations Required?
Legal requirements for dealing in food and retail trade include a Shop Act Registration and a Fssai License, respectively. By registering, businesses can ensure that they are operating legally and securely. Customers can identify businesses that are legally operating and have the necessary licences thanks to these registrations. As a result, if you intend to run a retail trade or food product business in India, make sure you have the required Shop Act Registration or Fssai License before you begin operations. Customers will feel more secure knowing they are doing business with a legitimate company, which is not only necessary but also required by law.
Getting your FSSAI
You can apply for a licence as soon as your paperwork is complete, and a new licence will cost you around Rs. 2000 per year. You can access the FSSAI website and complete the sign-up process by creating a username for the registration. The application process is straightforward. Then, sign in to your account and complete the online application by uploading all required documentation. The printout of the completed online application form, along with all required supporting documents, must be submitted within 15 days of the date of online submission.

What Exactly Are MSMEs?
Manufacturing and service businesses are the two major types of micro, small, and medium-sized businesses (MSMEs). Manufacturing enterprises are those engaged in the production, processing, or manufacture of items for any industry listed in the first schedule of the Industry (Development and Regulation) Act of 1951.
Businesses in the service sector provide or perform services, either with or without the use of tangible goods. These services can be related to business activities such as accounting, marketing, advertising, event management, and so on, as well as personal services such as air travel, educational services, health-related services, legal services, environmental services, and so on.
