Food Safety Display Boards

Food Safety Display Boards

As per the FSS Regulation, there is a mandatory requirement of displaying FSSAI License/Registration Number at food premises. Usually, the FSSAI license number is not visible to the consumers. Thus, to change the overall consumer perceptibility and to strengthen food safety, FSSAI has introduced Food Safety Display Boards (FSDBs) for various food businesses. Henceforth, in addition to the existing mandatory requirement of displaying FSSAI License/ Registration Number, it will also be mandatory (in a phased manner) for FBOs to display these Food Safety Display Boards at FBO premise.


Food Safety Display Boards are informative board which primarily display food safety and hygiene practices to be followed by FBO in their establishment. The FSDBs are colour coded for different kind of food businesses for ease of recognition by the consumers.

1. Restaurant (Purple)

2. Fruit & Vegetable Retail (Green)

3. Meat Retail (Red)

4. Milk Retail (Blue)

5. Street Food (Purple)

6. Retail Store (Grey)
