FSSAI Food License Registration for Food Manufacturers

What are Food Manufacturers? 

Food Manufacturers are the companies who make food products, process them and sell them in packs. Food products like packed chocolates, biscuits, cakes, readymade noodles, bread and other necessary food products are made and sold by the food manufacturers. Preparation and processing of this food need to be done as per the food safety protocols.
