We understand the critical importance of compliance in the food industry, and our dedicated team of experts is committed to helping you swiftly fulfill your regulatory obligations. Our comprehensive services are designed to ensure that your food business operates in full compliance with the regulations of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), thereby safeguarding both your business and the well-being of your consumers. With Financial Tree Company by your side, navigating the complexities of FSSAI Annual Return filings becomes effortless, enabling you to concentrate on your core mission – providing safe and delectable food to your valued customers.

Following the regulations set forth by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), every food business holding an FSSAI license is obligated to submit an annual return individually. This requirement applies to each license held, regardless of whether the same Food Business Operator possesses multiple licenses.

The Annual Food Business Return ensures that food businesses adhere to FSSAI regulations and maintain transparency in their operations.

By submitting the annual return, businesses provide essential information to the FSSAI concerning their operations, encompassing food products’ production, handling, storage, and distribution. Food business operators should acknowledge the importance of this annual return and ensure its timely submission. Failure to adhere to this requirement may result in penalties or, in more severe cases, the suspension of the FSSAI license, posing a risk to the business’s ongoing operations.

Food Business Operators (FBOs) Eligible for Annual Return Submission

The FSSAI annual return in Form D1 must be filed online with the Food Licensing Authority by the following categories of Food Business Operators (FBOs) for the type of food products they manufactured or sold in the preceding financial year:

  • Food manufacturers
  • Labelers
  • Importers
  • Packers

Every FBO, including those engaged in the distribution of milk and milk products

The requirement to file FSSAI returns applies to specific categories of Food Business Operators (FBOs) in India, as outlined below:

  • Business Turnover: FBOs with a business turnover exceeding Rs.12 lakhs must file FSSAI returns.
  • Involvement in Food Activities: FBOs engaged in various food-related activities such as importing, selling, manufacturing, exporting, storing, distributing, handling, or transporting any food product must file FSSAI returns.
  • Milk Manufacturing and Distribution: FBOs involved in manufacturing and distributing milk are also required to file FSSAI returns.

It’s important to note that the FSSAI has issued a notification specifying certain entities that are exempt from filing the FSSAI annual return. These exempted entities include:

  • Fast-food joints: Establishments primarily focused on fast-food preparation and service.
  • Restaurants: Dining establishments that provide prepared meals and beverages for on-site consumption.
  • Grocery stores: Retail stores primarily sell a variety of food and household products.
  • Canteens: Facilities that serve food to a specific group of individuals, such as employees in a workplace or students in an educational institution.

These exempted entities are relieved from the obligation of filing the FSSAI annual return, as per the notification issued by the FSSAI.

Following Clause 2.1.13(1) of the Food Safety and Standards (Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses) Regulation, 2011, all licensed Manufacturers and Importers are required to submit their Annual Returns using Form D1 no later than May 31st each year. This return should cover the activities conducted during the previous Financial Year.

It’s essential to adhere to the submission deadline. Any delay in filing the Food Business Annual Return beyond May 31 each year shall attract a penalty of Rs. 100 per day for delay until the date of filing of the return. The maximum penalty levied shall be at most five times the annual license fees.

When completing the FSSAI Annual Return, the Food Business Operator (FBO) is required to furnish the following details:

  • Name of the product manufactured or imported.
  • Size of the container, packaging (e.g., P.P.), or bulk packaging.
  • Quantity measured in Metric Tons.
  • The selling price of the food products per kilogram or per unit of packaging.
  • Value of the Food Product.
  • Quantity of imported goods measured in kilograms.
  • A comprehensive list of the countries or ports from which the food products are imported.
  • Rate per unit per kilogram for packaging cost, insurance, and freight (C.I.F.) Free on Board (F.O.B.).
