Alcohol

Alcoholic beverage imports, distribution, storage and wholesaling is regulated in the U.S. primarily by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (BATF). An agency of that bureau, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), primarily issues permits for companies to operate as alcoholic beverage businesses in the U.S. TTB also strictly regulates the labels that appear on all alcoholic beverages, whether the alcohol is produced domestically or in foreign processors. The various states and localities (counties and cities) also regulate alcoholic beverage distribution, importation, storage, wholesale and retail operations and issue permits that allow businesses to perform these business operations.

FDAImports.com, LLC represents alcoholic beverage importers, wholesalers, warehouses and distributors in various U.S. states and before the TTB and other federal agencies (such as Customs and Border Protection and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)). All imported articles are subject to Customs requirements and alcoholic beverages are also "foods" under the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA). As a result, importing alcoholic beverages occurs under the watchful eyes of several different federal agencies.
