Hi there - We're off to France next week in our motorhome (amazing eh!). Travelling used to be sooooo easy but now there are so many hoops to jump through. Clearly fresh food (milk, butter, meats, etc) are not allowed anymore but I like to stock up my store cupboard with dried pasta, canned goodies, sauces etc., Can anyone tell me if its still ok to take canned/dried goods? shrugg Thanks. up!

The restriction is mainly on animal products (meat & dairy, eggs etc).

Dried pasta should be OK but not tinned or packaged with any meat and or dairy content:

"pasta and noodles not mixed or filled with meat product containing less than 50 % of processed dairy and egg products and treated as provided for in point (a)(i) of Article 6(1) of Decision 2007/275/EC"

Full chapter and verse can be found in the pdf Fact Sheet downloadable from the link here:

PS we find the choice of these and other items to be as good if not better in French supermarkets than here so you won't starve!

Hi Roger - thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I don't take a lot as we do love French markets/supermarkets but I always like to have a couple of 'emergency' supplies en route and certainly our own tea and coffee! up! Take care - and thanks again

As a result of Brexit food restrictions apply to all EU countries not just France.

We are travelling to Bilbao by ferry & will face same problems.
Not able to have the usual cup of tea with milk now when we land until done some shopping.

 Yeah, that was my main concern as well. Ne'er mind - first stop supermarche!
