You can send store-bought food if its shelf life is longer than 6 months from the date of shipping. If you are shipping internationally, there are extra rules that limit what you can send.
What foods can I ship?
- Foods must be in the original manufacturers packaging.
- Food packaging must be sealed and not tampered with in any way.
- Food label must list all ingredients.
How do I ship food?
- Don’t send food items that must be kept in a temperature controlled environment in transit (refrigerated, frozen or chilled) as they will spoil by the time they reach their destination.
- Always package your food items so that they can withstand the parcel being placed upside down during transit, and always wrap individual items separately inside your parcel for optimum protection.
- Always check the import restrictions in the country you are shipping to, to avoid sending foods that are prohibited at the destination. Some countries may require additional paperwork.
Note: Non perishable food can be shipped.
