Importing Food & Beverage into the United States can be complex and costly. FSVP requires importers to verify that their foreign suppliers of food for human and animal consumption meet applicable FDA safety standards. Importers must verify that their suppliers are producing food using processes and procedures that offer the same level of public health protection as the preventive controls requirements in the preventive controls and current good manufacturing practices rules for human food and animal food and according to FSMA rules. VQIP (TPP), established by the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, provides expedited review and importation of human and animal foods into the United States for approved applicants who achieve and maintain a high level of control over the safety and security of their supply chains.
