Exporting chicken feet from UK to China,


I would like to export chicken feet to China from Ireland and UK. I need to know the requirements and documents for exporting. Can you send me requirements please? Do I need to register an export company? Thank you very much!

Dear Stephen,

Please find a general overview of the requirements for exporting meat and poultry outside of the EU on our website:

An export health certificate must be in place as agreed between the UK/Irish and third country government in order to export a product such as chicken feet.

Please contact The International Meat Trade Association at info@imta-uk.org for further details on the requirements.

Kind regards,
