Export Essentials: An Overview of Export Documentation for Food Products

Where do you go when a foreign importer asks you for a “health certificate” or a “phyto” and you sell cookies, candy, or tortillas? Though sometimes an afterthought, export documentation is an integral part of the export process and a key component of becoming a successful exporter. The proof is in the paperwork.

This webinar will provide participants with an overview of commercial and regulatory export documentation for food products. For each of the export documents listed below, attendees will learn:

  1. What each document is used for
  2. How they fit together
  3. Who requires it

  5. Where to find more details on them
  6. How important it is to confirm with the importer
