LFGB – Food and Feed Code

Compliance with LFGB for products from China

Since 2005, the German Food and Feed Code (Lebensmittel- und Futtermittelgesetzbuch, LFGB) has applied to everything that is sold in Germany in terms of food and feed, as well as safety-related consumer goods. The decisive factor for the coverage of consumer goods by the LFGB is how much and how long the product is in contact with food.

Products covered by the LFGB include:

  • Crockery, cups, cutlery
  • Salt and pepper shaker
  • Fruit bowls
  • Cutting boards

In addition to goods that come into contact with food, the LFGB also covers items that come into contact with the human body (skin, hair, and especially mucous membranes). These are for example:

  • Bed linen
  • Baby teat (teat)
  • Pipes
  • Toothbrushes

The background of the LFGB is the safety of humans and animals. Consumers have a right to receive tested non-toxic goods. This is intended to prevent damage and make the global movement of goods safer.

LFGB compliance for products from China is a mandatory performance. Appropriate testing is necessary.

To ensure LFGB compliance for products from China, LFGB testing should be conducted in China.

I commissioned the Agentur Frisch to have a larger piece of furniture produced in China and then to transfer it to Germany. Communication via email was smooth the whole time! Very quick and reliable answers constantly gave me the security that is essential in such an undertaking. I was helped through the bureaucratic jungle at all times and no forms were forgotten or filled out incorrectly. Very commendable!



Everything top. It doesn’t get any better than this. Consulting and implementation can not be done better. We are more than satisfied after several orders with this company and continue the cooperation.
