C-TPAT (Customs Trade Partners Against Terrorism)

The safe delivery of food from Spain to our customers is our top priority. To add a further level of security for our customers, La Tienda actively sought out C-TPAT certification.

La Tienda undergoes an annual audit to ensure that all C-TPAT processes and documentation are maintained.

The C-TPAT program was implemented by US Customs and Border Protection to ensure the secure transport of goods across US borders. Participation in C-TPAT means that La Tienda plays an active role in the war on terrorism. As border controls tighten, C-TPAT compliance ensures the swift shipment of our goods across international borders.

Key elements:

  • Random hazard analysis testing
  • Thorough screening of all suppliers in their countries of origin
  • Thorough employee background checks
  • Shipping container and conveyance scrutiny - extremely high levels of scrutiny ensure the integrity of our products.

As of 2008 LaTienda.com is C-TPAT certified in good standing. More information can be found at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website.
