Foreign Supplier Verification Program
We now offer a comprehensive study of the compliance requirements for the FDA's Foreign Supplier Verification Program for yourself or your team. This program covers verification procedures for all imported food shipments of food subject to the Preventive Control rule or the Standards for Produce Safety rule, where from time of entry the FDA requires the food importer to declare through Customs’ and FDA’s electronic entry filing systems the Name, the Facility Address, and the Unique Identifier (the DUNS#) of the person designated as the “FSVP importer” for the shipment.
You may be the FDA Registered FSVP Importer:
“The U.S. owner or consignee of the imported food product at the time of entry. This includes the party in the U.S. who is the actual owner or purchaser of the food at the time of entry. This could include a U.S. party who has agreed in writing to purchase the food.

Gluten Free Certification Options
The gluten-free products market is predicted to be worth $8.3 billion by 2025, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 8.1% between 2020 and 2025. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of and wary about gluten in their diet and one in three are now avoiding or reducing intake. A number of challenges must be overcome to produce safe, reliable gluten-free foods that inspire consumer confidence. These exist throughout the supply chain, from preventing cross-contamination in the production process to branding products with a gluten-free trademark that retailers and most importantly, consumers, truly trust.
91% of consumers declare that their buying decisions are impacted by third-party verification and 76% prefer products certified by a recognized coeliac association.
CCI uses a scientifically proven, risk-based management systems approach for effectively controlling gluten and gluten cross-contamination from incoming ingredients to the final product. It goes further than simply carrying out end-product testing and can easily be combined with a Food Safety audit.
