PIF Export Webinar


Join us at the Pet Industry Federation’s (PIF) export webinar to introduce details of a new export solution for UK pet businesses that would like to sell their products to customers into the EU.

The Pet Industry Federation, the UK trade association for pet businesses, has been seeking a solution to export issues which would enable companies to send animal proteins, bird and small mammal products, supplements and accessories, as groupage (ie multiple or single pallets), into EU countries in a cost effective and reliable way.

Date: Wednesday 19 January 2022
Time: 12pm (GMT)

Since Brexit, exporting to the EU has become extremely time-consuming and difficult for UK pet companies. A survey undertaken by PIF in 2021 revealed that the number of pallets being exported to Europe by UK pet companies has dropped by as much as 66%, for products containing animal protein. Companies wanting to send just groupage rather than full truck loads, being particularly affected by the post-Brexit changes.

PIF has partnered with DHL and Associated Veterinary Services to develop a pioneering scheme which will help companies overcome the huge export challenges they have been facing and open up the European gateway once again in a commercially viable way.

PIF Export Webinar

The scheme is now at a stage where it can be presented for further feedback and refinement to UK pet companies. Pet companies who are interested in exporting to Europe (whether for the first time; or to open up that market once again) are therefore invited to attend a webinar, organised and hosted by PIF, which will set out the plans for this export solution.

The export webinar will cover:

•    Options currently open to UK companies looking to export, including the new PIF export solution
•    Veterinary certification
•    Paperwork
•    Logistics and groupage
•    Importer of record
•    Fiscal representation and VAT issues

The webinar will include representatives from both DHL and Associated Veterinary Services.
The webinar is free to join and is expected to last one hour. The event is open to UK manufacturers and suppliers; please complete the registration form by clicking on the link below to attend.
