If you want to import food into the UK visit the Food Standards Agency Imports page for information.
If you have a food business and want to sell your produce abroad, first you need to with us. You may also be required to have a food export health certificate.
Apply for a food export health certificate
Contact the embassy or consulate of the country you want to export to and they'll tell you the information needed for a certificate to be issued. Email this information to us.
We'll then inspect your business to verify the food produced complies with UK legislation and we may make additional checks, depending on the wording required on the certificate.
Further information about exporting goods is available on the GOV.UK website.
