Summer is finally here! We are excited to send out our summer issue of the reSOURCE. What products do Canadians love to use in the summer?

Source Nutraceutical will be there and would love to meet up with you. And finally, did you know there is a new Nutrition Facts label for all packaged foods in the United States?
Canada has always been known for snow, hockey and cold temperatures, but summers across Canada are actually quite warm and beautiful! Many of us like to escape to the cabin for the weekends, enjoy all of our beautiful lakes and beaches, and be outdoors.
Declared by the 68th UN General Assembly, 2016 has been labelled as the International Year of Pulses (IYP). The goal of IYP 2016 is to increase public awareness of the incredible nutritional, environmental and societal benefits of pulses as part of sustainable food production. Pulses are not only a vital source of plant-based proteins and amino acids – they should be included in regular consumption as part of a healthy diet.
Will you be attending CosmoProf North America? It is Source Nutraceutical’s first year attending and we would love to meet up with you! CosmoProf North America is the leading B2B beauty trade show and is being held at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas this year.
On May 20, 2016, the Food and Drug Administration finalized a new Nutrition Facts label for all packaged food in the United States. The change was done to help consumers make better informed choices about food. It will also reflect the link between diet and chronic diseases such as obesity and heart disease.
Food manufacturers have until July 26, 2018 to adopt the new format. Manufacturers with less than $10 Million in annual sales will have an extra year to comply (July 26, 2019).
