Question: Is it necessary to get license to sell homemade baby food? My parents manufacture all these powders for infants and marketed locally out of generations. Now want your advice and I want to start it on line.
Whether it’s essential to get license, guide me. If that’s the case, because these are ready at our home kitchen, what would be the conditions expected for the license? Could we get it for the speech of our house that is rented?
Response: Yes, you have to apply for your own license/registration of your food business as you’re well under the ambit of meals Safety & Standards Act, 2006. For manufacturing/processing capacity is upto 100 ltr/kg per day then you need to submit an application for the registration certificate and then you have to apply under the FSS Act for the license, if it’s more than 100ltr/kg. You can show the leased premises as your own food business location. The area ought to be located besides keeping the sanitary conditions, from any external influence. The meals manufacturing/processing are must be allocated for the food activity which we would not be possible in a home kitchen.
