I am relocating to the UK from the US, the moving company is telling me that certain items are not allowed through customs in a shipped container, but I cannot find any official information backing this up.
In particular they mentioned that you cannot bring food of any sorts, including dry spices. I have tried to check online, and it seems that spices are in fact allowed but I am not sure if that is only in the personal luggage so the question is:
Is there a different set of restrictions for goods that are shipped than for goods that are carried in the personal luggage? In this particular case, I am traveling from a non-EU country to the UK.
