Apparently I have been summoned
So my “knowledge” suggest that you should have 0 issues.
- From personal experience I had no problems.
- Gathering information from other users:
“I just spent a month traveling through Asia. I took an open bag of Huel (in it’s original package) on 13 different flights through 7 different countries (US, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and India) and didn’t have any problems.”
“I just did a trip from Aberdeen, Scotland to Busan in South Korea via Amsterdam and Seoul. I have 3 un-opened bags (Im here for 6 weeks) that were all checked in. I was stopped by customs at Seoul ( I had to collect my bag and change airport ), they thought I would have something to declare, I told them it is just protein shake and the sent me on my way.”
“Food such as prepackaged snacks are generally considered safe because they have been sealed and unlikely to carry any bugs. I carry gluten-free food everywhere when travelling but confine it to things in sealed packs so that there isn’t an issue in any country I go to. Meal replacement shakes which are powder in sealed packets are light to carry and can just be mixed with fresh water purchased wherever you are. Unopened protein bars, chocolate bars, packets of nuts and nibbles are not usually a problem if they are sealed”
One thing i would consider is using an unopened bag, so they know it has not been tampered with.
- There is no specific on meal replacements, but they seem to allow similar products for personal use:
- infant formula:" Infant formula is allowed into Australia for personal use. It must be commercially prepared and packaged and list the country of manufacture on the packaging. The quantity allowed into Australia will depend on the country of manufacture.
If the infant formula is manufactured in an approved FMD-free country, you may bring up to 10 kilograms or 10 litres for personal use, either in passenger luggage or as unaccompanied baggage or by international mail.
For infant formula manufactured in a country that is not on the approved FMD-free country list, you may bring:
- up to 10 kilograms or 10 litres if accompanied by an infant
- up to 5 kilograms or 5 litres if not accompanied by an infant
- Up to 1 kilogram or 1 litre for unaccompanied goods (e.g. goods sent by international mail)."
However, perhaps most importantly:
This is the site where you can more or less check the conditions.
" 1. A Department of Agriculture import permit is not required, providing that the following conditions are met.
2. The goods must meet biosecurity requirements.
To demonstrate compliance with this requirement you must present the following on a Manufacturer’s declaration or Food product label:Evidence that the goods were manufactured in countries approved by the Australian Director of Biosecurity as free from foot and mouth disease (list of countries approved as free from foot and mouth disease).
- If documentation is unable to be provided, or the documentation is insufficient, then the goods will be inspected to ensure that they comply with the conditions.
- The goods must be commercially prepared and packaged.
- The goods must be imported for personal use.
A consignment is considered to be imported for personal use if the goods are:
up to 10 kilograms of solid food, or
up to 10 litres of liquid food.These limits apply per passenger or consignment.
Commercial samples (of any quantity) and goods imported in quantities greater than those listed above must be imported under the non-personal use conditions.
6. These conditions prohibit the goods or any derivatives, to be distributed, sold or used for any purpose other than human consumption or as a human therapeutic.
7. The goods must be clearly identifiable."
