The most important market in the world for coffee is the European Union (EU) that
has standardized rules for importing this product (and once it enters it can circulate
freely among the different countries of the Union). In addition to Germany’s 10%
accumulated consumption, the other EU countries consume a fair amount of
coffee: France and Italy, for example, each account for 6% of the world market. In
total, the sum consumed by all EU countries accounts for 44% of the global coffee
1. Traceability (truy xuất nguồn gốc)
Foodstuffs must comply with the EU health and safety requirements before
entering the EU market. As a result, coffee can only be exported to the EU if it
complies with EU food law or equivalent conditions. For instance, food business
operators – including the final importer – should be able to trace and identify
where their products came from, and where they are going as well, to rapidly
provide this information to the competent authorities if required. This is called
As a food business operator – including final importer – you must be able to trace
and identify where your products came from and where they are going, to rapidly
provide this information to health and safety authorities if required.
2. Pesticide residue ( dư lượng thuốc trừ sâu)
To ensure that food placed on the market is safe and does not contain contaminants
that could pose a danger to human health, food imports into the EU should comply
with EU food safety standards and respect the maximum level of contaminant per
product. For instance, specific limits of Ochratoxin A are set for coffee and the
limits vary depending on whether the coffee is roasted or soluble.
Besides, coffee cannot be exported to the EU if it presents residues of pesticides
exceeding the maximum levels permitted, thereby posing an unacceptable risk to
humans. Maximum pesticide residue limits have been established for coffee and
you can find the exact amount for each pesticide at the EU pesticide database
available at the Export Helpdesk. For instance, 1 kg of coffee beans may not
contain more than 1 mg of Carbofuran in order to enter the EU.
3. Labelling/Brand
Labels must be, visible, legible, indelible, and clearly worded in a language easily
understood by consumers. Usually this means in the official language(s) of the
European country where the product is marketed. You may use foreign terms or
expressions if they will be easily understood by consumers. Packages (or labels
attached to pre-packaged coffee) must display:


national provisions apply, the name should be a customary name or a
description. A trademark, brand name or fancy name may be used in
addition to the generic name. You must also include the coffee's physical
condition or specific treatment undergone (roasted, soluble, etc), if its
omission could be misleading for consumers.
consisting of a single ingredient, where the name of the food is identical to
the name of the ingredient or enables the nature of the ingredient to be
clearly identified. You must always indicate any substances that might cause
allergic reactions.
BUSINESS NAME AND ADDRESS of the manufacturer, packager, or
seller established in the EU.
 PLACE OF ORIGIN OR PROVENANCE, where its omission could be
misleading for consumers.
 LOT MARKING on pre-packaged foodstuffs. Format: "L..."

These indications must appear on the package or on a label attached to pre-

packaged coffee

4. Coffee extract, soluble or instant coffee – specific labelling requirements

Markings such as `Coffee extract©, `soluble coffee extract©, `soluble coffee© or

`instant coffee© mean that the package contains concentrated product obtained by
extraction from roasted coffee beans using only water as the medium of extraction
and excluding any process of hydrolysis involving the addition of an acid or a base.
Coffee extract must contain only the soluble and romatic constituents of coffee –
apart from insoluble substances technically impossible to remove, and insoluble
oils derived from coffee.
The term "concentrated" may only appear on the label if the coffee-based dry
matter content is more than 25% by weight.
The term "decaffeinated" must appear if the anhydrous caffeine content does not
exceed 0.3% by weight of the coffee-based dry matter.
This information must be within the same field of vision as the sales description.
The above requirements do not apply to café torrefacto soluble.
