FSSAI License for Dairy Farming unit

Clause no 2.1.1 (Chapter 2 – Licensing and Registration of Food Business) specifies that “Provided that a producer of milk who is a registered member of a Dairy Cooperative Society registered under Cooperative Societies Act and supplies the entire milk to the society shall be exempted from the provision for registration.”

In view of the above provision and in our opinion, you do not require registration if you are a member of the Dairy Cooperative Society and sell your entire milk to the society. However in case you sell milk directly to customers other than Dairy Cooperative Society; then you are not exempted from the provision for registration and you need registration as a milk vendor.

FSSAI License and Other License Required

Recently i started my dairy farming unit from last 8 months and supply to saras dairy in the Jaipur. Before Setup the dairy ask me about the FSSAI License Registration and other necessary documents like Company Registration Certificate, Company Bank Details, NOC and MSME Registration Certificate.

FSSAI Registration or License is depend on your operation area, because there are 3 type of the FSSAI Registration mainly -

1) FSSAI Basic Registration till the 12 lakh turnover

2) FSSAI State License till the 12 lakh to 20 Cr. Turnover

3) FSSAI Central License till the 20 Cr.

So i go with the basic registration in the starting which cost me around 3k from a online website myonlineca. apart from this i applied for the pvt ltd company registration. in that you got the certificate of incorporation so on that basis you can open a current bank account for the same.

even i applied for the MSME Registration because its required by all small business under the dairy products etc. on this basis you can apply the govt subsidy and bank loan.

That's a good initiative by you! Congratulating for your idea and that sounds like a good question. For starting a Dairy Farm, you need to submit your proposal to the State Directorate of Animal husbandry and Veterinary Services and Amul. It is not mandatory to get an FSSAI license. Instead, Equip the outlet with deep freezers, refrigerators, chest milk coolers, ovens, dispensing machines, etc., The local Amul representative will be in a good position to help you on machines requires their capacity, type, etc, Equipping your outlet will cost you around ₹80,000 to ₹1,00,000.
