The Federation has joined with a group of 28 other trade bodies in calling on the Government to provide more support to companies that export product of animal origin (POAO). A letter was sent on the group’s behalf to Secretary of State the Rt Hon George Eustice detailing our concerns.

There is potentially a major issue that as a country we have insufficient vets certified to provide the number of Export Health Certificates (EHC) that will be required to support the current export trade. This issue has been known for some time but despite this we have only seen a limited increase in the capacity.  As a group we are calling for a more pragmatic approach to certifying products, including the use of vets already on manufacturing and processing sites who have first-hand knowledge of the standards being met. The letter also asks that it is recognised the very high standards that already exist in UK food production and this should be used to help vets in certifying products that have been reared, produced, manufactured or packaged in the UK.

The BFFF would like to recognise Shane Brennan of CCF for the work he has done in pulling this this letter together.  A copy can be found here.
