FSSAI cracks the whip on unauthorised food business

The Food Safety and Standard Authority of India has made it mandatory for all Food Business Operators (FBOs) to obtain online registration or licence of their establishments for running their business.
A spokesman of Himachal Government on Thursday said that the Government of India has fixed February 4, 2016 as the last date for obtaining licence or registration.
He said that all food manufacturers, packers, whole sellers, distributors and sellers, food importers, hotels, restaurants, clubs, canteens, caterers, food transporters, food storage establishments, food processing units etc. were covered under the FBOs.
He said the action would be taken against the FBOs which failed to obtain licence or registration before the time limit under the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.
The spokesman added for more details the FBOs could contact the Chief Medical Officer or Designated Officer or Food Safety Officer of their concerned district.
