Do I need to register my business as food facility? Do I need to register my product with the FDA and how?
Specific product types such as dietary supplements, acidified foods and infant formula require additional registration beyond a food facility registration.
If you produce, hold, or package food, then you probably have to register (for free) as a food facility with the FDA.
Very small businesses and producers of specific food types may also be exempt from some requirements.
"Very Small businesses" can apply online or via mail for an exemption to specific parts of the FDA Regulation.
Certain businesses are exempt from parts of the Code of Federal Regulations due to their small size. This exemption is called a "Qualified Facility Exemption".
