Export Certificates


An Export Certificate is required by food manufacturers or exporters who wish to export food of animal origin to countries outside of the European Community.

These certificates confirm that a specific business complies with all relevant legislation and the food produced is without risk to exports.

Export certificates will only be issued if:

  • The business is registered with us
  • Food Hygiene Standards are met
  • The food is produced or packed in the borough

For more information visit GOV.uk.
