Shakeology In Australia
9/11/10 6:16 PM
Hey Guys,

I have recently started using p90x and I love it! only thing is I have been looking for a meal replacement shake and have found nothing that compares to Shakeology! sounds amazing and we cant get it in Australia. I am wondering if there is any way to get it posted out to the land of Aus? would it get through customs as a gift? I cant see why it wouldnt be allowed in? can anyone help me!!

So I emailed customs in Australia and they said that anything to do with food etc has to be dealt with by the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service, so I emailed them and this was the response:

Thank you for contacting the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS).

Importing supplements containing dairy will be permitted by AQIS subject to the following conditions:

Dairy products must be labelled as 'Made in' or 'Manufactured in' one of the countries listed by the World Organization for Animal Health (formerly known as the Office International des Epizooties (OIE) as free from foot and mouth disease (FMD) with or without vaccination. This information can be found at http://www.oie.int/eng/info/en_fmd.htm.

If the labelling of the formula does not specify the country of manufacture, or includes the phrase ‘made from imported ingredients’ or something to that effect, you will need to obtain a manufacturer's declaration certifying that the dairy component is sourced from a FMD-free country.

For our purposes a manufacturer's declaration must be:

a) from the manufacturer of the product being imported; and
b) on the manufacturer’s letterhead; and
c) signed by an appropriate company employee whose name, title and contact details also appear; and
d) dated and free from erasures and alterations; and
e) written in English and containing the correct statement/s as required by the relevant ICON case; and
f) specific to the relevant product by name.

Information regarding import conditions for specific products can be found using AQIS's Import Conditions Database (ICON). ICON can be used to determine if a commodity intended for export to Australia needs a quarantine permit, mandatory treatment or if there are any other quarantine requirements. ICON can be accessed via the internet at the following address http://www.aqis.gov.au/icon.



All mail items entering Australia are screened and if items of quarantine concern are identified, they will require inspection. It is important that all declarations on mail parcels are true and provide sufficient detail about the goods inside. There is an opportunity to list all the contents of the parcel on the Customs Declaration that is available from post offices around the world.

So can anyone tell me whats written on the packet? does it say made in? or manufactured in?

Any help would be great!

Steve,

Australia is one of the hardest countries in the entire world to register dietary supplements. We are evaluating the process. However, it will not happen anytime soon.

Thank You,

Steve,

I was sad to read about Australia being so hard to get dietary supplements into. My question is Does this include New Zealand also?

RE: Shakeology In Australia / What about Holland

Dear Dr. Bill,
Do you think Holland is also a strict country to register dietary supplements. I would REALLY love to order Shakeology as well but Beachbody can't ship to Holland.
any help/assistance is much appreciated!
Linda

If you go though a shipping company like viaddress (google search) you can get stuff shipped though them.

Shakeology does get through Australian Customs! I have ordered 2 batches, and had beachbody send to a relative in Canada and he has posted it to me with success. Customs did open the box to check it out and they removed nothing so all is good!

Hey AussieAmes. My Hubby and I received our P90X today and will be starting in about a week (after we get our head around the eating plan).

We used to import raw whole food into Australia and man oh man it is hard work getting stuff into this country. I know MD's of companies who have worked for 6 years for approvals and they're "nearly through".

We've been researching this for a couple of weeks and we're going to the GNC shop at Westfield tomorrow to talk to the owner up there. He is amazing and is up to date with all the exercise programs on the market.

If you like I'll let you know what he recommends (we're printing the ingredient list from Shakeology and taking it to him).

We start training soon and can't wait to get into it!

Like you we would use Shakeology but knowing AQIS and Customs as I do I wouldn't bother ordering any supplement from overseas. Last thing you want to do is get it once or twice and then not be able to get it again.
