SIF is the acronym used for Federal Inspection Service. He is responsible for inspecting and ensuring the quality of animal products, whether edible or not.

This means that in order to market and register honey with MAPA, the product must pass inspection and receive the SIF seal of approval on its label.

If any establishment is caught selling its honey without the SIF seal, it may be fined.

Therefore, without your approval, it is not allowed to sell honey! The approved product must have the SIF seal on its label.
