Hi, I have been told by my customer in Spain that I must declare the weight (mg) of the E numbers that are in our food product. Is this correct because I haven't been asked for it before. Does anyone know if this is correct please? I ask because a number of the ingredients don't state the weight of any E numbers just the % value. Many thanks for any advice

Thank you for your post. Please see the below link below for Defra's AHR FAQs: https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/7p45mp1m76alah9l5hflt/Moving-goods-from-Great-Britain-to-Northern-Ireland-from-1-January-2021-Trader-Showcase.paper?dl=0&rlkey=jydkxnhpnumqpfu0bydsozy2l https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/hv5ezne2pqv3s42jr2w2p/Exporting-Goods-from-GB-to-the-EU-from-January-2021-Trader-Showcase.paper?dl=0&rlkey=9rx61tps2munmv0h6h266rafv In particular if your food item is a composite product: EU legislation is clear in that it says all the POAO and products of plant origin ingredients need to be listed indicating their percentage and nature in descending order of weight. Recent EU guidance suggest though that it is acceptable to group the different types of ingredients (e.g. plant, dairy) when providing this information. If you have specific questions about the format of the information ,it would make sense to speak with the BCP.
