Bring as much as you want. Remember to go through the red channel. You must pay Swiss VAT and maybe some import duties.

Yeah it is not going to be a big huge shop, a shop that is around 40 to 50 square meters, I will be going over first to make contacts with suppliers that can ship the goods over afterwards. The business will also be running alternative medicine energy stimulation which will be done by my son who is training at the moment.

Hi
I want to know if there are any restrictions around bringing food items (large quantities) from India to Switzerland, I have company option to bring enough goods via ship

Agencies are telling India doesn;t allow that.,.,. is that true?

If you're planning to sell medicine (comercially) the you should check that out with the cantonal authorities as there are certain substances only pharamcists may sell and only under certain conditions. There may also be rules as to how such substances should be labelled, packaged and stored and you risk being fined if you contravene any of these rules.

In Zürich, this would be the place to go...
