thanks, can I sell without having Fssai license via whatsapp & FB?

Yes you can first start by selling to known ppl in your contacts circle. Based on their feedback you can decide if you can proceed seeing if ur getting viable profits. Many home ppl sell large quantities thru fb WhatsApp without any registrations thru their known circle.

You can spend on registration Fssai once u decide to sell on any online platform officially..

You can setup your store and sell to customers near you, it's free of commissions or any setup fees. Do let me know if you face any issues😄

These guys kick butt when marketing their products. I found them in 2014 when they had only 4 or 5 products. Hopefully it'll give you some inspiration & ideas for marketing.

My wife has done more business than me reselling stuff on a 500 follower Instagram business account. Without registration, bank account or a website. Don’t worry about those things now.

My neighbour's 12yr old kid started her insta page some 2 weeks before and doing business.

Adding to your list, Intellect Property protection (trade mark registration etc), contracts with landlords, suppliers, vendors, service providers, customers, website terms and conditions, privacy policy, contracts with employees..

Two ways to go around it.

Create an instagram page and posting stuff using food hash tag but that's a long process. Other way is much shorter but it will require good hustle. You should create small. Packets of sample and start disturbing it to the neighbours and nearby resturants as free for tasting. If they liked you can give the restaurants a discounted price if they can plug in your packets to clients
