The greater part of the general population once in a while doesn’t get the required nourishment from their food habits. They rely on food like Pizza, Burger, Rolls, and so on that doesn’t give adequate nutrition. Because of this people feel low in vitality and not ready to accomplish their objective in regards to wellness.

But to supply any health care product and do business, all the companies need to take permission from FSSAI and follow the rules of FSSAI. In India FSSAI- food safety and standards authority of India, is the supreme food regulator. It performs under the ministry of health and family welfare. It regulates manufacturing, storage, sale, distribution and import of food products.
It is very important to check the products before using it. And FSSAI has a very important role to play, to check the quality of food product and whether it is free from adulteration, contamination and contains hygienic products within it. It is always advisable to eat food products which are approved by FSSAI.
FSSAI’s condition for working in this industry are-
- For registration, its annual turnover should be more than at least Rs. 12 lakh.
- For state license, annual turnover to be more than Rs. 12 Lakh and up to Rs. 20 crore.
- For central license, More than Rs. 20 crore annual turnover is necessary.
If the company is unable to fulfill the requirements and unable to provide for safety standard documents for assessment, then the company gets rejected for license. For this reason companies need to follow FSSAI norms and standard to get food license and product approval before launching the product for the public in market. FSSAI penalizes the companies if they default in the standards and norms as stated.

The company needs to take NOC (no objection certificate) from FSSAI to import the products in India. After this the FSSAI will provide them with license and then they can sell their products here.
FSSAI is the regulatory body in India for food products and health care products. It checks whether all the standards and norms of FSSAI are fulfilled by the company or not. FSSAI license is mandatory for a company to sell products. My Herbalife India imports the products so it first needs to get NOC and provide all documents to FSSAI and then apply for license.
