Food Supplements Regulatory Intelligence in India


The food industry in India is expected to witness unprecedented growth in the coming years due to many factors that may vary from increased health consciousness, changes in the eating habits and the rise in demand for sedentary lifestyle. Despite the market growth, food business operators face multiple challenges to obtain the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India– FSSAI license for food import and food product approval. 

FSSAI, over the years, has been trying to set up a self-compliant culture in the food industry. The FBO is responsible for the product safety and the information available on the product label, including strong data on manufacturing, control and claims. Although the regulations are in place for FSSAI food license, the challenge lies in comprehending the regional compliance requirements related to food composition, sourcing ingredients and advertising restrictions on special foods and infant foods.

Freyr’s Regulatory assistance span across various compliance requirements starting from food product classification, product compliance, label and claims compliance, along with submitting dossier for the FSSAI product approval, food license, food product approval and food registration.
