Produce & Herbs

header_eggplantThe American people want their produce year around. Due to limited growing seasons in the US, America has to import produce and herbs from countries like Chile, The Netherlands and Mexico just to name few countries. Importing produce and herbs can be tricky. There are different regulations and permits required for different products arriving from different countries. You will also need to acquire an import permit from USDA for most items. USDA also requires a physical examination of most fresh produce that arrives in the US. For shipments arriving by air, we can assist in meeting the agriculture specialist at the airline to help with the exam. For shipments arriving by ocean, we can help to set up the inspection and monitor its release. Flegenheimer International has been helping our clients import fresh, frozen, and dried produce and herbs from the wild and greenhouse grown for years and can help you navigate all the different Government agencies and regulations.
