Trinidad and Tobago: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

While most U.S. food products readily enter Trinidad and Tobago (TT), consideration for an import license, health certification, product labeling and other documentation for select products must be observed in order to avoid costly delays during the Customs clearance process. U.S. suppliers should be aware that port of entry scrutiny can be intense on new-to-market players as well as new-to-market food products until a track record of compliance can be established. To avoid import hiccups, it is recommended that U.S. suppliers have their TT buyer verify compliance with all import requirements prior to shipping new-to-market products. A list of the relevant TT authorities is provided in this report.
