Food Safety

Nothing is more important to USFI Sales than the safety of the food we sell to our customers. We subject all of our suppliers to a rigorous supplier food safety verification program including verifying Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) audits and certification are current. For our foreign suppliers we conduct a comprehensive Foreign Supplier Verification Program which meets (and generally exceeds) the requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Foreign Supplier Verification Program Rule under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Our food safety verification records are available for our customers to review through our customer portal.

Regulatory Compliance

Keep your QA and legal departments happy with our written guarantee provided to customers that all of our products sold meet FDA regulatory compliance standards. This provides our customers with a safe harbor under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (21 USC § 333(c)) which precludes FDA from imposing civil and criminal penalties on businesses and officers of such businesses for introducing adulterated or misbranded food into interstate commerce among other things.

With our in-house customs broker and compliance team we work diligently and effectively to confirm all applicable regulatory requirements are met so our customers do not bear regulatory compliance burdens. We act as the importer of record and Foreign Supplier Verification Program importer for FDA-regulated food imports.
