E-commerce food platforms are booming in the country today. All of a sudden, consumers have started relying on online food delivery marketplace to order food. The FSSAI has made it mandatory for the e-commerce food platforms to obtain food license for the entire supply chain to ensure that safe food reaches the customers.
Alongside, the delivery of the food also needs to be done by trained staff so that food safety is ensured.
For an online food delivery marketplace in India, the following registrations are compulsory to get the business going:-
FSSAI License – Non-compliance with FSSAI rules and guidelines can lead to payment of fines, imprisonment and even cancellation of licenses. When the e-commerce platform receives a customer complaint regarding the quality of food, the online food delivery marketplace needs to immediately inform the concerned owner/manufacturer.
The owner/manufacturer needs to take immediate steps to resolve the issue. In the event that there is recall of any food item or a food item has been found to be non-compliant, the e-FBO needs to immediately take out that particular food product from its list on their online platform.
The e-commerce food business operators can apply online to get their license. The online marketplace has to first register on the system and then log in to complete the application process within 30 days of online registration.
The license fee for a new license is about Rs. 7500 per year. The central license can be obtained by the e-commerce FBO for a period ranging from one year to five years. Before the current license expires, however, the e-FBO needs to reapply for renewing the license.
