FSSAI Food License Registration for Repackers

What is a Repacker? 

Repackers don’t manufacture the products by themselves. They procure the products from the manufacturing unit and label them under their brand name and market them. By this, they can cut a huge amount of cost when it comes to production. Though repackers are not producing the food products, they have to ensure the quality. Any adulterants added during the production process may affect the health of the consumer.

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India regulates and supervises food safety in India. It is a government body that acts under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. FSSAI mandates that every business related to food must undergo FSSAI registration. It includes food-producing, handling, delivering and retailing entities. FSSAI established FoSCoS (Food Safety and Compliance System) to get an FSSAI license. No food business is allowed to run its business without an FSSAI certificate. 

Repackers source the food products from the producer and sell them under their brand. These food products need to be of good quality.
