Exporting sauce to non-EU countries
I have a commission to produce a custom chilli sauce to be used as a promo item for a UK based band. They will sell the sauce a) on their website, b) at concerts when on tour.
With regard to a), their key export markets are USA, Japan and Australia. All sales would be imported to those counties for personal use only (no resellers). The product contains no animal or dairy ingredients and the only 'additive' is isomerised hop extract. Are there any import restictions we need to be aware of?
With regard to b), I assume the band would be the importer, selling direct to the end users for personal use (this side of the issue is less urgent than the internet sales).
On a general note, if my products contain no animal or dairy ingredients or additives, and are always sold direct for personal use, are there any countries where I or my retailers might have problems?
