Exporting Food Products from the United States

Firms exporting products from the United States are often asked by foreign customers or foreign governments to supply a written export certification for products regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA may provide this certification in a form the agency determines appropriate. For food products, FDA provides written certification for exports in the form of certificates and list of eligible exporters for specific products or destinations. Please note that FDA does not require written certification for exports.

If you export food, it is your responsibility to:
• Follow U.S. laws and regulations
• Follow the requirements of the countries to which you export
