NEW DEADLINE FOR NEW FOOD REGULATIONS IN CANADA IS APPROACHING

We have all been strategizing and talking about it for years — and the cut-off date to have your food products on shelves meet revised Regulations for food labelling in Canada is advancing.

Our team has already been updating packaging across the country to reflect these regulations proactively, but if you’ve been waiting for that ideal moment to transition your existing food packaging before the impending enforcement date: it’s here!

Health Canada is giving food manufacturers until December 2021 to implement all these changes.

Amongst the current global state, Health Canada has given no updates in regards to an extension to this deadline. Transforming your Canadian packaging to the new regulations involves many stages of your products evolution; from identifying the manner in which to re-group ingredient lists on your packaging, to updating all claims on the package to meet new serving size requirements. All of these updates are not only going to make your products compliant, but also make your important inventory maintain low-risk. It will also help your valued Canadian consumers make clear and informed choices about what you’re providing them.

Not sure what this means for your company? Our expert staff can guide you through the regulatory process involved in updating your food label. You may even be eligible for new label claims under the new regulations!

Now is the time to update your current food packaging so you have sufficient time to roll out new compliant packaging on retail shelves without scrambling to meet the deadlines.

Reach out today and let us answer your food labelling questions!
