[quote=“Belgian Pie”]Canned veggies and fruits and meats are not illegal to import … cured as in raw, salted is illegal, fresh veggies and fruits are too …
This is a bit weird. Given that anyone could just find a local factory that can produce cans or buy a machine that can put stuff into a can.
There’s a lot of local producers where I’m from that could easily put anything in a vacuum sealed can.
Then print a pretty label on it with a Epson Stylus Ink Printer …
i.e. Cassoulet, Pates de Canard (duck paste), etc:
If you can produce a veterinary form from any country that states the kind of raw meat and if it’s say not on the no-go list you can always pass through custom quarantine department to get it cleared for import … it will cost you.[/quote]
Veterinary forms in Germany are german only… so they would probably just give me the no-can-do look
No-go is raw or cured beef from some European countries, Japan and others … MAD cow problem …
It might not be possible for private citizens without an import license tho …[/quote]
I don’t have contact with any cattle in Taiwan (actually I never saw a cow here) and ham is made from pigs so the mad cow is really not a issue. Neither does the stuff I “import” have bones.
Even if you have a importer certificate it would remain illegal to import fresh meat. so we’re back in the same square…
