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.


What that means is that every facility along the food and beverage 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?

It is a requirement that all food and/or beverages for human or animal consumption destined for the U.S.A. are 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.
