By the end of 2021, the global food import bill will exceed $1.75 trillion, marking a 14% year-over-year increase and 12% higher than the previous forecast. The new FAO Food Outlook has shown that food trade is remarkably resilient to disruption during the pandemic, but rapidly rising prices pose significant challenges for poorer countries. and consumers.
As the increase was driven by higher international food commodity prices, freight costs also tripled. Developing regions account for 40% of total food import bills and are expected to grow 20% year-on-year. This increase is expected to grow faster for low-income countries.
The COVID-19 outbreak is posing new challenges to pest control and management, exacerbating food insecurity in several developing countries in unforeseen ways. In some countries agriculture is affected by diseases, such as locust plague. Many countries and development agencies face new problems in the delivery of pest control and monitoring activities. For example, because of the disruption in the supply chain, there is a delay in the transportation of pesticides to the affected areas.

Legitimacy of Food Exports: The rules and regulations for food exports depend on the local regulatory authorities of foreign governments. This means that the export process depends on both the importing country and the exporting country. Different places require different types of permits and certifications, so exporters need to consider country-specific requirements for both the country of origin and the country of destination. For certain products, it may be banned in some places but completely acceptable in others. For example, some countries place limits on hormone levels in poultry, beef and other animal products. Several other markets place restrictions on pesticides commonly used to grow plant products. Some importing countries also require food safety checks, export certificates, export permits, import permits and other similar documents.
Food packaging and labeling: There are many things to consider when packaging and labeling food, especially when the food is sold in foreign markets. For these cases, it is important to note that food labeling must be done in accordance with the regulations of the country where the food will be purchased.
Food for export must be packaged in such a way as to keep it fresh and free from contamination or damage during transit from origin to destination. Check your packaging to make sure it’s capable of keeping food fresh and maximizing shelf life. Food packaging also plays a huge role in branding and marketing. The way marketers design their packaging, in terms of language and general appearance, should be done with the end recipient in mind.
Transporting food for export
Transporting food is a little different from transporting other goods. When it comes to shipping food, shelf life is a major factor to consider. For dairy products, meat, vegetables, fruits and other fresh products that need to be transported and delivered relatively quickly to avoid spoilage before arrival, this will be more difficult than products like rice. , beans and other dry goods.
Two main forms of export are AIR AND SEA. Air freight is usually the fastest export option, but ocean freight is the most cost-effective. Time is of the essence for perishable goods, so despite the cost, the option of shipping by air can be a great option for the food market.
It is important to choose a carrier that is reliable and capable of delivering timely food shipments. Also, make sure that the carrier you have chosen ships with caution and care, as improper handling can damage food products resulting in more costs
