The FSSAI appointed the food safety authorities on various levels to regulate and supervise the food safety standards. The FSSAI ensures the quality and safety of the food.
The Government of India launched the FSSAI or the Food Safety & Standards Act 2006 to promote and protect the health of the public. The FSSAI license acts as proof and permission for the manufacturer or distributor of cooked and processed food that is sold commercially.
On 1st June 2020 FSSAI renamed the Food Licensing and Registration System (FLRS) as the FoSCoS (Food Safety Compliance System). FoSCoS is the latest version of the Food Licensing and Registration System which works in a similar manner to enhance or inspect the quality of the food and material used in it. The inspection of the food is done in all stages from manufacturing to distribution to improve the quality and regularity of the food.
