If you export food to non-EC countries you are usually required to provide a 'health and purity certificate' to show that the food is fit for human consumption.
After examining the food we can issue certificates for £61.50 each.
Collection of unfit food from a business
If you have unfit food for disposal you will need to make arrangements with a suitable waste disposal company who can collect this from you.
Certification of unfit food
You can get a certificate of unfit food from us if, the food has been found to be unsaleable or unmarketable because of its condition. For example, when a freezer has broken down and the owner of the food is making an insurance claim.
The charge for certification of unfit food is £61.50.
Charges for information requests
Charges are usually made when you make a request for information that we are not legally required to provide.
The charge is £61 (excluding VAT) per hour.
