Imports of foods on non animal origin for private use
The person importing the food of non-animal origin, must show that the consignment goes to a private address and is not for commercial use.
A commercial sample is a consignment that is brought into the country for qualitative, sensory or research purposes and which won’t reach consumers. Commercial samples do not always need to be border controlled by the Swedish Food Agency. If a consignment with commercial samples of non-animal origin does not exceed a net weight of 50 kg of fresh products or 10 kg of other products, it is exempted from border control. See Article 1.3 of Regulation (EU) 2019/1793.
