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.
