Food businesses get time till January 1 for quoting licence number on bills

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has decided to extend the timeline for enforcement of its order, that will make it mandatory for food business operators to mention their license or registration number on cash receipts, to January 1.

It had earlier said that restaurants, food retailers, caterers and sweetmeat shops will need to mention FSSAI license or registration number on cash receipts, purchase invoices, bills or cash memos on sale of food products from October 1.

The food safety authority said the decision for extension was taken after receiving representations from industry bodies on the issue. “In view of representation from various industry associations and stakeholders, it has been decided with the approval from competent Authority that the enforcement of …the order will come into effect from January 1, 2022,” it added.
