Food Import and Export

The food we eat today comes from a global marketplace comprised of over 170 countries. Sobel Network Shipping Co., Inc. works directly with the FDA and USDA, to ensure that your food imports safely pass through the inspection and customs process to be delivered fresh and on time.

Under the provisions of the U.S. law contained in the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, importers of food products intended for introduction into U.S. interstate commerce are responsible for ensuring that the products are safe, sanitary, and labeled according to U.S. requirements. (All imported food is considered to be interstate commerce.)

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it.
