Importing food of animal origin from non-EU countries
Foodstuffs of animal origin include meat, meat products, milk, milk-based products, fishery products, birds’ eggs and egg products, honey and other apiculture products, frogs’ legs and snails. Foodstuffs of animal origin also include composite products that contain processed products of animal origin. “Imports” refer to the movement of food of animal origin from non-EU countries (“third countries”) to the EU. However, if the foodstuffs are brought from a country that is considered equal with EU Member States based on an agreement between the country and the EU, the movement is not considered importation from a third country but import from the internal market. Such countries include, for example, Norway and Switzerland.
