That would depend on a number of factors including the form in which it is being shipped (, ground, ready for retail sale, bulk in sacks, liquid concentrate, etc.)


We have experience with helping several small - mid sized coffee growers/roasters in Panama with shipping bulk and also pallets of retail type packages for sale thru concerns like Amazon.


For Panama the requirements were FDA-FSVP, Sanitary Permit, Pest Control inspection/clearance, etc.


The buyer may have specific certifications they require from your company prior to accepting your product in addition to the minimums that would be above and beyond the minimums.
