FSSAI plans to regulate e-commerce in food biz

According to FSS Act 2006, distributors, wholesalers and marketers need to be licensed and registered under the Act.

Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) is all set to revive the food business in India.

After bringing street food vendors at a single platform, the food safety body is now inviting e-commerce grocery players and food-tech entrepreneurs to follow the food safety rule.

According to FSS Act 2006, distributors, wholesalers and marketers need to be licensed and registered under the Act. Whereas, players who are a facilitator to the consumer, like foodpanda and Zomato, need to be made aware of the provisions of the FSS Act 2006.

Hence, in order to provide consumer with uniform level of protection through the availability of the option of making informed choices, FSSAI is organising an open discussion with leading players and experts to deliver safe food to consumers.

In this welcome act, the food body is also looking to decrease the legal uncertainty for the consumers.

“All food business operators in the country will be registered or licensed in accordance with the procedures laid down in the said regulations,” the statement said.

The European Union already has a regulation in place for the e-commerce business in which it has made it mandatory for them to give complete information including food safety aspects relating to food products on their respective web pages.  The regulation also enables enforcement sampling at any stage of the supply chain.

Players like Amazon, Snapdeal, Flipkart, InnerChef, foodpanda, Zomato, TravelKhana and others would be seen discussing the way forward for the growth of e-commerce food business in the country.
