Selling eggs at the farm gate: registration, labelling, stamping and storage


This business guide explains the rules when selling hen eggs directly to the final consumer or a local retailer (not via a packing centre where different rules will apply).

It should be read along with business guide “Food Hygiene: regulations and responsibilities explained”.

The rules that you need to follow depend on the number of hens you have and where you sell the eggs.

A summary table of requirements is provided at the end of this guide.
