Food export certificates

If you have a food business and wish to sell your produce abroad, you may be required to have a food export health certificate by the country of destination.

To apply for a food export health certificate, you will need to contact the embassy or consulate of the country you wish to export to and they will supply the details and format required for the certificate.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office website (external link) allows you to search for an embassy. You should then contact us with this information. Before a certificate is issued we may make additional checks depending on the required wording of the certificate.

We will not supply a certificate unless you have registered your food business. There is a £120 charge for each routine certificate.
