Regulations for exporting food products to China


Dear Team,
I am in China and I know a shop owner who would like to sell quality UK food products.
What are the regulations when it comes to food,which website can I find the information/paperwork?
Your help is much appreciated.


Hi there,

Many thanks for your question – you will hopefully get an answer in a week or so.

For now, I recommend looking at the following webinar for tips:



Depending on what you want to stock – if there are any ingredients derived from animals eg milk (which may also be in cheese, yoghurt etc), fish, pork products, you will also need an ‘export health certificate’ signed by an official vet and issued by the UK Government. Some products are prohibited from entry to China.
