Participation at International Food Exhibition

In addition to corporate compliance requirements, food and perishables have strict import and export regulations in each country which generates delays in delivery.

We work in advance to deliver food samples on-time for international trade shows, exhibitions or any special business events.

Previous inquires from clients

"Samples were not delivered on the first day of the trade show, and we missed business opportunities"
"I carried the samples by myself but all the food samples were confiscated at the airport"
" We ended up with unexpected cost since we didn't know proper documentation and procedures in advance, and our project was out of budget at the end"

〈Issues with Import Regulation〉

Chocolate (France) The chocolate samples arrived at the local airport, but since they contained milk, the custom clearance and quarantine rejected its entry into France and the samples were returned back to Japan due to lack of necessary documentation.
Frozen Tuna (China) Instead of focusing on China business opportunities, we ended up researching on how to ship the frozen tuna samples for the trade show in China. Due to various import regulations and necessary paperwork, the logistical paperwork was not completed on-time and we ended up receiving the frozen samples 20 minutes before the start of the show.
Processed Fish Product (Korea) Local custom and quarantine requested additional documents upon the arrival of samples. Without enough knowledge on how to provide for these documents, we ended up spending lots of time and money just to provide for the additional documents.

〈Issues with mishandling〉

Ice-cream (Korea) Frozen samples were not handled properly and melted during shipment. It was clear that the frozen samples were melted and then frozen again before delivery.

〈Temperature Control Packing〉

Cake and Confectionary Pastry (China) Since the exhibition was during the summer, cake and pastry samples required chilled transportation. However, the client did not know how to arrange for chilled international shipment. By the time, the client checked the paperwork and necessary packing, it was too late to meet the deadline for the exhibition.

〈Temperature Control Packing〉

Ice-cream (China) Samples successfully cleared Chinese custom. However, reefer truck was not arranged and as a result the samples melted before delivery.
Frozen Art Object (Demark) Lacking enough coolant and samples melted before delivery to the designated local hotel.

〈Issues with hand-carried baggage〉

Juice (Korea) The juice samples for the exhibition was hand-carried by the client on board. While the immigration and custom were smooth, samples were packed in big and heavy coolant box which caused lots of inconvenience due to unfamiliar new location.

〈Unexpected Cost burden〉

Processed Vegetable (Thailand) The baggage was over 20KG allowance, resulting in extra-charge at the airport. As well as other charges at the Bangkok airport due to custom and quarantine inspection check point.

〈Issues with Import Regulation〉

Frozen Sashimi (raw fish) (Singapore) Subjected to animal and quarantine checks at the airport upon arrival. The samples were confiscated since it was subject to control.
