Preface
Foodstuffs account for an important part of the production coming from the developing countries and the sector represents a great export potential. In order to make the most of this potential, it is, however, necessary to improve and adjust the quality of the products in order that they may live up to the requirements ofthe export markets. The first barrier is for the exporter to obtain knowledge about the requirements and needs of the export markets, and as far as exporting to the EU is concerned, it may prove very difficult indeed to get a clear picture of all the various types of legislation that define the requirements of the individual product. The various foodstuffs are all covered by a mutual basiclegislation but in addition to this, further legislation apply depending on the type of product. In relation to the legislation it is expedient to devide foodstuffs into three categories: Fresh fruit and vegetables, vegetable processed foodstuffs and animal foodstuff. The Danish Import Promotion Programme DIPP has in co-operation with the Danish Food Directory and QMS Consult drawn up three fact sheetsoutlining which kind of legislation, you must take into account as a company wishing to export foodstuffs to the EU. The fact sheets do not give detailed information on specific products but indicate to the reader what must be taken into consideration and give guidance to the reader on how to find the relevant information. We trust that the fact sheets, i.e.: • Fact sheet on Hygiene, Quality andPhytosanitary Requirements for Fruit and Vegetables in the EU • Fact Sheet on the Requirements for Processed Food of non-Animal Origin) within the EU • Fact Sheet on the Requirements for Foodstuffs of Animal Origin within the EU will prove helpful to exporters from the developing countries, who wish to enter the various EU markets.
