Guidelines for registration of food vendors

12,December, 2013 Comments off

The administration has come out with a set of guidelines for registering retail vendors and manufacturers of food items under Food Safety and Standards Act (FSSA), 2006.

Under rule 2.1 of FSSA, the licensing rules apply to all food manufacturers and suppliers, bottling plants, hospital canteens, oil manufacturers, rice retailers, bakeries, ice plants, soda plants, milk vendors among others. Those engaged in cottage-level food manufacturing such as making snacks from homes, wedding caterers, temporary food suppliers for temple festivals, and food retailers through petty shops with an annual procurement of less than Rs.12 lakh are required to apply for licences to the area food safety officers.
