Thank you for you comments. You are right i should get into this industry before i start importing. But if somebody is willing to share their experience i would be very excited to hear it. I am open to suggestions and the whole import thing is only visionary at this stage so any help would be appreciated.
Hi everyone. I am new to these forums. I am coming with the same question as I see this thread gone quiet. I have connection with Colombian farmers and would like to import raw coffee beans to UK and distribute it to local roasteries so I have a few questions. Do I need to hold any food related certificates to do this? What are the food standard requirements to trade coffee? Is there any courses available to take to find more details about this? Any information would be highly appreciated.
