How to register/license your food business

Nov 16, 2011

The directorate of food and drugs administration (FDA) in Goa is responsible for implementing and enforcing all food and drug related legislation. This includes controlling the quality of food articles manufactured and sold within Goa as well as manufactured outside the state but sold within.

The recent notification of the food safety and standards (licensing and registrations of food business) regulations 2011 by the Indian government, has put out new rules effective in the state from August 5, 2011. The last date for registering or licensing a food-related business is August 5, 2012.

Food manufacturers and business operators, who have approvals under the Goa prevention of food adulteration rules 1982, will have to convert them to registration/licence under the new regulation by applying to FDA.

    Business licenses are permits issued by government agencies that allow individuals or companies to conduct business within the government's geographical jurisdiction. It is the authorization to start a business issued by the local government. The business activity determines most license requirements. Other determining factors may include the number of employees, location of business and the form of business ownership, such as sole proprietor or corporation.
    Business licenses are not limited to new business owners. Companies already established need to file renewal applications after a certain period of time. Many businesses often require more than one license and permit to legally operate, a process that can be expensive, time-consuming, and frustrating to deal with. Although it may seem like a tedious process, it is important a business owner abide by the law and obtain the necessary certification to operate their business. Going forth with operations without -–the security of legal documentation is considered illegal, and it puts the business owner at risk for permanent closure, heavy penalties and interest, etc., if they are found in non-compliance.
