Packaging and transport of the food, feed and alcohol samples 

The material of the packaging has to correspond to the weight of the contents and be strong enough to securely keep them inside. Free space between the items and the box must be filled on all sides with filling material, so that the transport packaging would not lose its shape and the goods would not move inside the packaging. Use bubble wrap, filled airbags, shredded or corrugated paper etc. for inner packaging.

Liquids must be packed in a hermetically sealed vessel. Each hermetically sealed vessel must be placed in a sturdy box filled with absorbing material that prevents the vessel from breaking, the liquid from spilling and the contamination of other shipments.

If you use packaging with old labels, please remove them. The parcel must be labelled according to the courier company´s instructions. Make sure that the recipient's address, name and contact phone number are clearly legible and correct on the label.
