Primary production

You will need to file a food establishment notification for starting a primary production operation. Primary production means producing, growing, cultivating, harvesting, milking, and all phases of producing animal products that happen before slaughtering.

Primary production includes:

  • producing dairy
  • growing livestock
  • producing eggs
  • fishing and fish farming 
  • growing vegetables, fruit, crops, or mushrooms
  • producing honey
  • picking wild berries and mushrooms
  • hunting

You must file a notification when you start or end a primary production operation, or whenever there is a change in your operation. You can find the notification form here.

For more information on primary production, see the Finnish Food Authority’s guide for businesses (pdf).
