A lot on your plate? W2C can guide you through the ins and outs of food import regulations

The food industry has its share of complications when it comes to importing goods into Canada. Food safety is a prevailing concern, and the list of rules and constraints gets longer every year.

Companies that wish to import or distribute food products in Canada must navigate a labyrinth of regulations.

W2C is the perfect partner to help you import your products. Our team of technical experts can assist you and inform you about the requirements of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Fisheries and Oceans Canada or even the FDA in the United States.

Certain products call for controlled labelling, import permits and, sometimes, the use of an authorized sufferance warehouse in Canada.

Consult the W2C customs brokerage specialists before you import anything in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

Food products often require rigorous monitoring. In many cases, importers must provide the CBSA and CFIA with additional information, concerning the cold chain and perishability of the commodity, for example.

The W2C team has a heightened sense of urgency and attention to detail to ensure nothing is left to chance and you are kept informed throughout the entire process.
