It is very important to note that while it is good to take as much as you can when traveling to Canada, you should be aware of what is allowed under Canadian law. In this report, Legit.ng will take a look at some of the things you can bring to the foreign country.

1. Animal fat or tallow

On the Canadian inspection website, there are strict conditions before you can bring it in. He said:

PAY ATTENTION: Watch the news that is selected exactly for you ➡️ find the “Recommended for you” lock on home page and enjoy!

“Allowed only if you are accompanying you to Canada (cannot be brought in by mail or courier service).”

It added that “products that are cooked and shelf-stable (safe at room temperature) and products purchased in a sealed container (such as a glass jar, can, retort bag, disposable semi-rigid serving plates for ready-to-eat meals).”

2. Baked sandwiches and cookie

Canadian law allows you to bring cakes. However, the condition is that the snack must not contain meat in them.

3. Sweets and other confectionery products

Like those of point 2, sweets must not contain meat. This can cover things like chocolate and yogurt and other sweetened snacks.

4. Non-alcoholic drinks

Drinks from this group are allowed. There are no restrictions on this at all. But it’s important to always check with the Inspection page to see if anything has been updated.

5. Spices, tea, coffee and oils

Spices, tea and coffee are allowed. No wonder there are videos of people taking things like ground pepper, ogbono, okro, among other spices.

Another thing worth noting is that most of those foods are not expected to exceed 20kg in weight. There are those where you need to refer to the Automated Import Reference System (AIRS). If in doubt, refer to the inspection page.
