Should my suppliers zero rate the invoice for VAT for export orders?

Question

Is it ok that my suppliers zero rate the invoice for VAT for export orders?

We are exporting food products to trade clients in Asia. For every export order, we would buy from our UK and EU suppliers and consolidate the stock for export to third countries.
