No matter how old and where your child is, you want to take care of them. If you have a child attending university in the United States, you can send them care packages with their favorite foods from home. There are several regulations that have to be met when your send food to the USA. Fortunately, Fastway Express knows what these regulations are and can help you send a care package to your child.
What Foods Can Be Shipped?
The Food and Drug Administration in the US makes regulations about which foods can be accepted into the country. They also regulate which foods can cross the borders between states as well. We know what the regulations are for shipping food and we know that the FDA requires advance notice to import foods into the US.
With our knowledge and experience, we can advise you about the foods you can send in a care-package, package them correctly if necessary and help clear your parcel through customs. Once it is cleared through customs, it can be sent to its destination by air.
If you do want to send food to the USA, we have experience importing Indian foods to America. We work with many businesses who import Indian goods for small grocery stores or shops that sell Indian foods to people who miss their favorite items from home. Some of the foods we import into the US include:
- Indian Spices
- Spicy Marsala
- Rasam Powder
These are only a few of the foods that we regularly import to the US and other countries around the world. You can also send some homemade foods and goodies to your homesick college student.
Although we have seven locations around India, there is no need to drop off your parcel personally. We will pick up your package from your home or business and transport it to one of our locations. From there, we will ready it for shipment, help clear it through customs and then send your parcel to the US. Usually, your parcel will arrive at its destination within four to six days.
We also can deliver your parcel to the recipients’ door with the help of the international courier companies with which we work. We have good working relationships with UPS, DHL, FEDEX and several other reputable delivery companies. The price we quote for shipping your parcel includes insurance, so if something happens to your package, you can file for reimbursement for the value of the parcel.
When you have a busy student, a care package from home is a blessing and it’s even better when it contains their favorite foods. Fastway Express can help you send foods to the USA to surprise your child.
