Export Policies - Pet Food
The CFIA provides verification and certification services for pet foods that are made in Canada and intended for export.
Pet foods exported from Canada may need to have an official zoosanitary health certificate, which is issued by the CFIA. The completed certificate confirms that the sanitary requirements of the importing country have been met.
The CFIA negotiates import conditions with the importing country's veterinary officials. It also does inspections of Canadian export manufacturing establishments. It does this to verify that the products, manufacturing facilities, and practices meet the importing country's market access requirements.
- Approval of Facilities to Export to the European Union Raw Pet Food, Animal By-Products to Be Fed to Farmed Fur Animals*, Flavouring Innards for Use in the Manufacture of Pet Food, and Animal By-Products for the Manufacture of Pet Food
