The food safety regulator FSSAI has mandated food business operators to mention the license or registration number of FSSAI on cash register receipts or purchase invoice from October 1.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has issued a final ordinance in this regard.

Since complaints remain unresolved due to a lack of specific information, this ruling will help consumers who can file a complaint online against a particular food company using the FSSAI number, he said.

“Licensing and registration authorities are responsible for ensuring its implementation on a mandatory basis from October 2, 2021,” FSSAI said.
