Re: New Business...importing things, clothing, food, misc things from the USA

A good place to start is www.gruenden.ch. Some of the site is in English, but not all.

If you're going to import food, you must make yourself familiar with the Swiss foodstuff legislation (Lebensmittelverordnung). Some additives permitted in the US and even the EU are not permitted here, or only in certain amounts depending on the categories. There are also clear regulations on labelling food products, hygiene concepts, etc.

Good luck!
