Swiggy, an app-based popular food delivery company, is allegedly running its business in Guwahati without a valid licence. If the company fails to produce proper licence, the authority concerned is likely to take stringent action by closing its business in the city.
The Food Safety officials issued a notice to the app-based food delivery company under Section 31(1) and rule 2.2.1 of the Food Safety and Standard Act 2006 to produce licence.
This came to light after a raid conducted by a team of the Food Safety department at the company’s office situated in Guwahati‘s Ulubari area on Thursday.
According to media reports, as the company failed to produce any licence before the operating team, the company authority was given two days’ time to produce the same. It has been alleged that Swiggy is running its online food business in Guwahati with a licence for cloth business.
