To apply for an FSSAI License online we will need the following document from you.
FSSAI Basic registration
This is required for small businesses that have an annual turnover below Rs.12 lakhs. Basic registration can be upgraded to state license later as you grow your business.
FSSAI State license
Mid-sized companies that have an annual turnover of less than 20 crores need to apply for an FSSAI State License.
FSSAI Central license

The FSSAI Logo: You cannot use the FSSAI symbol. While a small food business may still get away with not putting this logo, as consumers become more educated, these little validations can go a long way when it comes to the cut-throat competition that the food business witnesses.
Trouble obtaining credit: Most investors, banks or lenders will do a primary check to see if you’ve got your basic licenses in order. Any business planning to scale to a greater level must apply for the license based on predicted sales/capacity.
Save money at the risk of reputation: While you may be able to save on the annual fee (which is in the range of 2000-5000), but in the absence of this license, it may be very difficult to prove to your customers that you maintain high standards of hygiene in your processes.
Risking disqualification from food-tenders etc: Not possessing an FSSAI License may also make it harder for you to apply to corporate events, fill tenders or make your way to a larger set-up as most of these opportunities will stipulate the requirement of a valid FSSAI License.
Liability: If any person or food business operator (except those exempted from licensing) who are mandatorily required to obtain a license, but manufacturers, trades, sells or distributes any food article without a license, then an imprisonment for a term of up to 6 months and a fine which may extend to Rs. 5,00,000 may be levied.
Missing out on quality assessments: Most importantly, as FSSAI aims to improve standards for the wholesomeness of food, the State governments often review existing procedures for manufacturing /storage etc of food grains, milk, spices, meat and other consumables. If you do not apply for a license despite meeting eligibility guidelines, you’re potentially losing out on improving your procedures and standard of quality.
The Basic FSSAI license needs to be renewed 1 month prior to the expiry date. After that you will have to apply for a new license.
