While exporting to the U.S. can be greatly beneficial for Polish food and beverage companies looking to expand their market, it can also be quite difficult.
Hampton, Virginia (PRWEB) April 02, 2015
On Wednesday, April 15, Registrar Corp will present a seminar at Worldfood Warsaw, a three-day business fair where food industry professionals gather to network and assess the market for product demand and current trends. Registrar Corp Vice President David Lennarz will go over U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations for exporting food and beverages to the United States and inform attendees on how to prepare for an FDA facility inspection. The seminar will begin at 13:30 at Open Forum Hall 4.
The United States is one of Poland's top investors, and Poland is the leading trade partner of the U.S. in Central Europe. According to the ITC Trade Map, Poland exported over $260 million USD worth of food and beverages to the United States in 2013. The top three categories of food and beverage products exported were:
- Meat, fish, and seafood food preparations ($73,893 thousand USD)
- Beverages, spirits and vinegar ($59,859 thousand USD)
- Cocoa and cocoa preparations ($33,133 thousand USD)
The United States' large economy and diverse market make it an appealing target for business. While exporting to the U.S. can be greatly beneficial for Polish food and beverage companies looking to expand their market, it can also be quite difficult. The U.S. FDA has strict regulations for foreign food entering the country. Food facilities are required to register with FDA. When a foreign facility registers with FDA it must designate a U.S. Agent for FDA communications and grant FDA permission to inspect its facility.
Foreign food facilities also must file prior notice for every shipment sent to the U.S. and follow FDA's strict labeling regulations. Labeling errors are one of the biggest causes of FDA import refusals. Register for Registrar Corp's seminar to learn how to navigate FDA's extensive regulations and prepare for an FDA inspection, and how Registrar Corp can assist.
Worldfood Warsaw takes place in Warsaw, Poland from April 14 to April 16, 2015. Along with presenting the seminar, Registrar Corp is a Worldfood Warsaw exhibitor.
