Why choose Pavalon?
Hello dear customer!
Thanks for tuning in to our website. No matter if you're looking for Kalles kaviar, Swedish candy or just a bar of Marabou, we're here to assist you.
We are a small company located in Torrance, California. Our mission is to provide you with the very best of Sweden. No matter if you're located in Los Angeles, New York or somewhere in between.
Comparing our site to Swedish ones may be a bit confusing when it comes to our prices. Therefore, we would like to take a moment to explain what you as our customer actually is paying for.
Shipping - We do not drop ship, nor will we ever do so. Everything you buy from us, has been bought in Sweden by our Swedish company, shipped to our U.S Company - Fulfillment center in Torrance, CA - Made available on our website - then fulfilled by our staff and shipped out to you as a customer.
When we started The Pavalon, we asked ourselves what would make us unique from our competitors. The answer was free shipping for all orders, no matter the minimum purchase. We are very proud to be the only Swedish food & candy store that offers this to all customers. In addition, we purchase priority mail (1-3 delivery days) so that you received your products fast!
We are also one of the only companys shipping refrigerated items on a daily basis. This means we pay extra for adding cooling boxes in your package, in order to guarantee safe & fresh products.
FDA Regulations - Everything we import from Sweden, Norway, etc, Is done with compliance from the FDA here in the U.S.
To simplify, this means that all the products/brands we import has been sealed with approval exclusive access to sell their products in the United Sates.
This might sound easy, but we can assure you that it's only possible because of hard work & trust, from one company to another.
Taxes & Toll
Our company is located in the state of California and we always pay import / toll tax on everything that we import here. The percentage of import tax vary from product to product. On candy it's around 12%, this means that you as a customer would never have to pay any additional toll/import costs when buying from us, since it has already been paid for.
