Maxum Foods are pleased to announce we are now accredited as an Australian Trusted Trader by the Australian Border Force.

Being an Australian Trusted Trader reduces red tape for Trusted Traders at the border, improves certainty in export markets, and expedites the flow of our cargo in and out of Australia, which means faster access to market.

As an Australian Trusted Trader, Maxum Foods now have access to a number of benefits which we will be able to pass onto our valued customers.

Priority processing.

  • We will receive priority processing through the National Trade Advice Centre and the National Refunds Intervention. This includes advance rulings in relation to tariffs, valuation and origin, advance ruling reviews, duty drawback claims, and refund and remission applications for customs import duty.

Priority treatment of goods at the border.

  • As a Trusted Trader, our business is considered low risk and given priority treatment at the border. This means faster customs processing and fewer interventions. If a cargo examination is required, we will receive priority processing.
  • Furthermore, imports from Australian Trusted Traders are seen as low risk and undergo fewer checks when they arrive. For any issues experienced at the border, such as goods held for examinations, we will be able to contact our dedicated account manager to ensure our goods receive priority treatment.

We want our customers to have the best dairy products at the best price from around the world. Through our exceptional relationships, we have supplier agreements in Australia, NZ, EU and USA. Maxum Foods only deal with well-known, trusted and high-quality suppliers to guarantee our customers the continuity and security of their dairy ingredient supply. Being an Australian Trusted Trader will further improve the level of service we can provide our customers, ensuring the prompt arrival of dairy ingredients which are sourced from around the world.
