Types of FSSAI Food License registration:

  • Basic Registration : This is a basic license , small restaurant should obtain a Basic license because it’s Annual Turnover is below Rs.12 lakhs.
  • State Registration : State license is given for all the food companies that package the food and sell on their own brand having a turnover around 12 lakhs-20 Crores Per Annum
  • Central Registration. : Central license is given to all manufactures of food and turnover should be more than 20 crores per annum .



License / registration with FSSAI is mandatory for every Food Business Operator (FBO). Whether a FBO requires a License or registration depends upon the factors like capacity of production/ handling etc. , nature of food business activities and area of operation. Before making an application to the authority FBO must undergo the eligibility search to understand whether it needs registration or license (State License/Central License)


Every person who is an importer has to apply for a central license at their address which has been registered with DGFT while obtaining Import Export Code. A food business carrying on business at different location needs to apply for separate license for each location. Thus each location will be issued a separate license except transporter where one license will be issued for all the vehicles of a single transporter/ business.


In case an Food Business Operator is operating in more than two states, it has to obtain one additional central License for the Head Office/ Registered Office and separate license for each location , which will again depend upon the factors like capacity of production/ handling etc. , nature of food business activities and area of operation.To do the eligibility search contact us.
