Sending roasted beans to NZ??
Wondering if anyone's sent roasted beans to NZ from Oz? Thought it might be a novel gift to send some home roasted beans to my old man and sister, but dont want to upset any biosecurity regs or risk wasting the beans/effort. Ive contacted NZ customs/biosecurity, but am yet to hear back from them. I can't see it being a problem, roasted, sealed etc.
SPOOKY! email that came in while I posted that thread was from NZ.......
"Thank you for your enquiry. Provided the coffee beans have been cooked (i.e. roasted) under Section 8.2 of the Import Health Standard http://www.biosecurity.govt.nz/files...-npp-human.pdf. they may be imported.
You will still need to declare them on the outside of the package and they may still be inspected on arrival."
So all good..... delete me if you need Andy!
I have sent roasted Coffee to NZ - no probs
