Delicious Deliveries: A Guide to Sending Food to Ukraine

Sending delicious surprises to Ukraine just got easier with Meest Canada's speedy international shipping. While it used to be a challenge, now your food parcels in Ukraine can arrive in a matter of 2 weeks. However, following proper shipping procedures for the edibles to remain safe is essential. In this article, we'll guide you on how to send food to Ukraine.

Can I Send Food to Ukraine with Meest Canada?

Wondering if you can send food to Ukraine from Canada? Absolutely! You're good to go with most factory-sealed food products, but keep in mind there are some DON’TS on the country's import blacklist. Customs tend to hold up packages that don't align with the allowed contents list.

Here are a few pointers on what not to ship:

  • Don't send food-only packages over 10 kg.
  • In mixed item parcels over 10 kg, declare all contents, not just food.
  • Avoid perishables and items with short shelf lives.
  • Only send food in sealed factory packaging.
  • Exclude alcohol, tobacco, animal feed, seeds, and seedlings.

For the complete list of items permitted for Ukraine imports, visit the Meest Canada website. We offer guidance on these regulations online and at their locations in Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, Montreal, and more.

Head to the Meest agent if you want your parcel to be registered for you. If you wish to have your parcel with yummy treats registered at home, fill out the parcel form at Meest Portal. Make sure you don’t miss any sections. Put in the address where the food must go and your payment info. Then, pick your parcel drop-off method and print out the barcode. Stick the barcode to your parcel, and you will be able to drop the parcel off.

Here is a short list of what food to send to Ukraine hassle-free:

  • Factory-sealed food.
  • Vacuum-packed eats.
  • Food in clean boxes, tins, or plastic.
  • Dry soups.

  • Canned foods like tuna or sardines.
