Kiwis helping your food and beverage organisation export to the U.S.A.
With the right business guidance, your organisation can succeed. Let us help you take one step closer by navigating U.S.A. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules and regulations, making it easier for you to export to the States.
At Kiwi and Associates (K+A) we specialise in assisting predominantly New Zealand, Australian and Pacifica organisations export food and beverages to the U.S.A.
There are many ways we can help, including:
staff here and available in New Zealand
understanding how to comply with strict FDA regulations
assisting you with critical export documentation required upon arrival of your products into the USA
Services we offer
Does my organisation need this service?
Since 9/11, the FDA in the U.S.A. completed new Bio-terrorism Compliance regulations to protect public heath and U.S.A. economic interests. Every facility along the supply chain from the farm gate to arrival at U.S.A. shores (defined as a "loop") must be registered with the FDA to comply with these regulations. Those organisations in that “loop” may include processors of your ingredients, trucking companies, packaging companies, bottlers and other relevant supply chain organisations.
What about my products?
All food or beverages for human or animal consumption destined for the U.S.A. need to be from a registered facility. This includes all commercial shipments including sample shipments. The exception is meat, poultry and egg products which fall under different legislation. See MPI for guidance on what regulations your products must adhere to.
