Fees & charges

You'll be charged for services provided by MPI and other service providers when you're exporting processed food.


Charges vary depending on what's in your processed foods

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) calculates fees on a cost-recovery basis. The charges that apply to your processed foods will depend on what ingredients your products contain. You'll need to check the exporting pages for each ingredient to find out the charges that may apply.
