Meat processing: approval

Service Description

To operate a meat processing business, you need to be licensed by the authorities.


  • The legal requirements concerning compliance with food and feed law and animal health and welfare are met.
  • There are no facts that justify the assumption that the food business operator does not have the necessary reliability to run the business.

Approval is granted on application after at least one on-site inspection by the authorities. It can be granted for a limited period and with conditions. With the approval, your establishment receives an approval number, which is made public.

No approval is required for retail establishments, such as artisanal butchers without slaughtering or restaurants that do not sell more than one-third of their products of animal origin to other local (i.e., located no more than 100 km away) retail establishments.
