Keep African Swine Fever out

Port Update

It is illegal to bring over 2kg of pork or pork products into Great Britain from Europe, unless it has the EU health mark or is commercially packaged as ‘of EU origin’,

This includes:

  • Preserved meats
  • Fresh cuts
  • Hams and bacon
  • Pork sandwiches and salads
  • Pet treats

Pork can carry the African Swine Fever virus, which has killed millions of pigs worldwide.

Portsmouth City Council’s Port Health Authority check imports of goods entering the UK through Portsmouth Port for food safety. This can include document and physical checks. Find out more about their work here.
