Prepackaged food – coffee, tea, biscuits, crackers, sweets, peanut butter, powdered products like yogurt etc., NZ manufactured and sealed cheddar cheese, with the exception of fresh meat and vegetables are generally ok to bring through customs but all food does need to be declared so it can be inspected and assessed on arrival.
