Storing non-animal products for export
Non-animal products for human or animal consumption include plant products, wine and organic products. If you store export non-animal food products for human consumption, the requirements you need to meet depend on the type of product being stored.
Requirements for products other than organic or wine
For products other than organic or wine, you can choose to operate under either:
- the Food Hygiene Regulations 1974, which are administered by your local council
- a Food Safety Programme (FSP) audited by a registered external verifier.
You'll also need to meet any requirements set by the destination country where the product is being sold. These requirements are laid out in the Official Market Access Requirements (OMAR) for each commodity and country. Alternatively ask your exporting agent.
