Exporting beer to Germany
Hi all, I need to get some of our London brewed beer into Berlin for a festival on the 5th of February. We're obviously duty-registered with HMRC, but haven't exported before and we don't know how to. All the beer we brew is currently sold and consumed in the UK.
If possible I'd like to start exporting with a third party taking care of the legalities etc. If our beer is well received in Berlin we'd look at whether or not it's worth taking the exporting in-house.
It's a relatively small quantity of beer we'd be testing the water with at first, but our people in Berlin tell us there's potentially higher demand there than in London, so exports could actually end up outstripping local sales in the long run.
Can anyone recommend me a company who could provide this service, and let me know about the legal procedures I'd have to go through to work with said company?
All help massively appreciated!
