Product Certification

Foods that comply with U.S. law may be exported to foreign countries if they meet the regulations of those countries. In order to be sure that your product meets the foreign country requirements it is important to go through the product evaluation process prior to exporting. There may be several certificates required for export of your product to a foreign country. Some are mandatory and some are optional. The certification process is a formal attestation by a regulatory agency that the product being exported is legal and meets all the regulatory standards within the U.S. We will help you obtain the appropriate export certificate needed for your product. We will contact the appropriate agency, fill out the paperwork and do the follow-up.  Sample Page
