Requirements and formalities for sending a sea container with food from Spain to Brazil

Shipping between Europe and America on container ships is daily and constant. Every day, thousands of tons of goods are shipped across the Atlantic Ocean in both directions to meet market and consumer demands.

Spain sends a large number of maritime freight forwarding operations to Brazil, one of the most powerful economies on the American continent. There are a number of crucial steps involved in shipping containers, especially when it comes to food. Exporting food by sea from Spain to Brazil requires meticulous attention in order to comply with the customs and sanitary regulations of both countries.

The company exporting food from Spain must be properly registered in the Special Registry of Foreign Trade Operators (REOCE) of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism. The food must be in optimal conditions for consumption and comply with the sanitary and quality regulations in both Spain and Brazil. Proper packaging is essential to protect the food products during the journey and to comply with packaging and labeling regulations.

In addition, the food exporter must prepare the necessary customs documents such as the commercial invoice, packing list, certificate of origin and other documents required by the customs authorities. It is important to know the requirements and procedures of the Receita Federal (the Brazilian agency responsible for customs control). In addition, depending on the type of food, specific sanitary certificates may be required to demonstrate compliance with food safety standards.
