Registering an agricultural company in Malta

The agricultural industry in Malta

The agricultural sector in Malta covers a wide range of products starting with vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood and dairy products.  Agricultural companies in Malta must comply with special requirements established by the Agriculture Directorate and meet certain standards upon the delivery of the products. An important branch of the Maltese agriculture sector is research and development which enables companies to come with new agricultural products or procedures related to their cultivation.

In order to sell products, Maltese companies operating in agriculture must comply with the requirements imposed by several authorities. Among these are the Food Safety Commission and the Veterinary Office. Considering most of the products are exported to other EU countries, Malta has also enabled an EU Food and Veterinary Office which is in charge with verifying the foodstuff to be exported.
