THINGS TO CONSIDER
Many people ship honey internationally on a regular basis, even though every courier has specific restrictions and packaging requirements for sending food and liquids.
Certified companies working in the apiculture sector can ship large amounts of honey internationally, provided they comply with safety, packaging, labelling and import regulations of the destination country. They must also have all the necessary certificates and pack the honey properly for shipping with authorised transporters only.
It is crucial to secure the honey in adequate leakproof containers. All companies exporting honey must comply with hygiene (e.g. Honey Bee Health Certificate) and quality standards established by the destination country. Read more about international customs clearance.
Individuals can mail honey to each other both within and outside the EU, provided they pack it well for shipping. Courier companies will not be held liable for damages that may occur to this type of product in transit and such a shipment would need to be covered by insurance. If you decide to ship honey and other liquid products in the mail, it is not recommended to post more than 1L abroad.
