Hi, and thank you for contacting with your question about shipping dry goods to Italy!

Use these general guidelines for shipping store bought foods:

  • Foods must be in the original packaging -- sealed and not tampered with in any way.
  • Food label must list all ingredients.
  • Foods must have a shelf life of longer than 6 months from the date of shipping.
