Introduction

FSSAI stands for Food Safety and Standards Authority of India. It is a regulatory body that is established and governed by the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006. The Act came into force to ensure the safety of food products delivered to the consumers. It ensures all the food products undergo proper quality checks thereby reducing the food adulteration and sale of low-standard products. It is a body responsible for providing registration and licensing of the Food Business Operators (FBO) in India and it lays down the guidelines for running the food business in India.
