Importing Mangoes Into Canada

Mangoes are duty free and tax free as basic groceries. Please be advised that food is CFIA regulated so importers are well advised to review and comply with the requirements and apply for a SFC CFIA license and DRC certificate (or DRC exemption letter) for fresh produce.

A DRC membership is required to trade fresh fruits and vegetables (i.e., to buy, sell, import, or export) unless otherwise specified. If you are not a member, it is important to determine if you require a membership in order to comply with the current regulations.

The DRC has developed a suite of self-assessment tools to assist in determining if you require a DRC membership or if you are exempt from the requirement. To learn more about Part 6, Division 6, Subdivision C—Trade of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables of the SFCR, including prohibitions and exceptions, refer to the DRC’s SFCR resources or contact the DRC Help Desk.

ARGO Customs Brokers are available to answer any questions you may have regarding the importation of fresh produce and related products. Please feel free to contact us at any time for assistance with importing and exporting to and from Canada.
