In today's world, everything and everyone is getting closer and closer. More people are traveling, living in different countries, and experiencing foreign foods and drinks more than ever before.
There are tourists or people living abroad (expatriate /expats) who are looking for a nostalgic taste of home. There are vacationers, who excitedly find a familiar product they enjoyed while traveling in a different country. Or just curious consumers, who want to experience food or drinks from a foreign country they have never visited.
Together with IWA, you can provide these experiences and joys to your everyday customers.
3 IMPORTANT BENEFITS TO IMPORTING:
Buying certain items internationally will naturally be cheaper because those countries are better equipped to grow and produce those foods. For example, coconut-based products will be cheaper from Thailand. Corn-based products will be cheaper from the USA.
Every country or region has a food that they specialize in. Tomatoes and pasta from Italy. Kona coffee from Hawaii. Soda and potato chips from USA. For consumers who are looking for authentic foods, trading is the only way to get them.
Simply by importing, you are offering a product that cannot be offered by the domestic market. You are bringing in new and interesting products that can potentially attract new, curious customers who are looking for something different.
We would make an offer based on the specifications of your product inquiry.
This would include product details such as pack/size, pricing, outer carton info, pallet configuration, shelf life, etc
If our offer meets your initial target criteria, we would arrange products samples of your tasting and packaging approval
If all is approved, we would start with the documentation process needed to clear import regulation to the respective countries.
Once we receive import approval from the importing country, we would then await the final purchase order from our customer.

Once payment is received in accordance with agreed payment terms, we would release/deliver the goods.
Depending on what is ordered, how it is ordered and where it is going, the product would most likely be at the port of your choosing anywhere from 2~8 weeks.
We also can also work directly with customer brokers in many countries, so the products could be delivered directly to your warehouse for an additional fee.
