We know that when you are a French expatriate abroad, what you miss the most is often... food! The cheese, the little cookies of our childhood or the good wine.

To stop overloading your family at each visit, here are 5 sites to buy the French products you miss and to be delivered with Easy Delivery

 

Our advice before ordering food products

Some rules to respect to send a package containing food: 

  • It is not possible to send fresh food in a standard package. Indeed, the packages pass through several warehouses during their routing. They can therefore be subjected to different temperatures that do not allow to keep the food fresh.
  • Give preference to dry foodstuffs or foodstuffs with a long expiration date. This will avoid a disappointment if the package is stuck for a few days at the customs for example.
  • Importing cheese and/or cold cuts can be very restricted depending on the country you live in. Remember to check with your local customs before ordering 15kg of sausage!
