We are Tim Forrest Consulting, your partners, advisors, and market entry specialists. Whether you’re a pro or just starting out, we’ve got your back.
Starting an importing business by yourself is challenging. We guide you through the importing rules and regulations into the USA’s food distribution system. We’ll also help you meet US FDA packaging requirements and the myriad of other agency requirements for a smooth port entry.
Let’s Talk Business
You’re probably wondering, “What’s the investment?” Our assistance speeds your import processes, reduces entry risks, saves you time, and gets you into the US market faster.
Investment:We offer a 2-step process to get your project going.
Step 1: $1,500 -Tim is a registered FDA agent with 25 years experience. He will complete the paperwork, communicate with the FDA and answer import questions. Think of Tim as the recipe. No stress on your part and passage of your products through the port goes much more smoothly. If you need USDA certification this is an additional $500. (You can do this step by itself or together with Step 2:)
Step 2: $3,500. This covers sales training, generating a list of contacts for you to call on, advise you on the design of your sales sheet, and evaluation of up to 3 product labels so your labels meet U.S. FDA packaging requirements. This prevents the product from being turned away at the port of entry.
