Notes for food importers through customs

Some packers/manufacturers are FDA approved or are in an automatic detention status. We recommend that you check the Food and Drug Administration website at: http://www.fda.gov/ora/fiars/ora_import_alerts.html

Some countries allow a pre-examination of fruits, vegetables, and other specific plant products. To see a complete list, click here: http://flegenheimer.com/documents/aphis.pdf

Depending on the food products that you are importing through customs, you may need a produce import license. You can apply online at http://www.aphis.usda.gov/import_export/index.shtml
