This month’s reSOURCE will be focused on a new adventure for Joe of our #BeLikeJoe series: as he tries to bring a Natural Health Product across the USA / Canada border. We also cover some new Health Canada file updates, some upcoming trade shows, and get to know Nicole Vuignier of Regulatory Affairs!
We are thrilled to share another installment of #BeLikeJoe. Here we focus on Natural Health Products and the process involved in bringing them into the Canadian market. NHP’s have many more restrictions, rules and regulations involved and can be extremely difficult to navigate the process on your own. Luckily, at Source Nutraceutical, we are experts in NHP’s.
Since you cannot sell NHPs before the Natural Product Number (NPN) is issued from a PLA, these extended target dates means new products or formulations will take longer to hit retail shelves. Please keep this in mind when planning future launches.
Further to the Government’s announcement to legalize the sale of recreational cannabis on October 17, on June 27, Health Canada announced two key developments on the cannabis file that would be of interest to us, our clients and potential partners.
Our team has been making note of the growing interest in cannabis products and resulting confusion surrounding the regulatory framework for cannabis-containing health products in the Canadian market. That’s why we have a special team of experts maintaining attention to the topic, so that you can get the latest information available.
September is always a busy time for Source! Every year we attend both the “Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) East” in Toronto, as well as “Natural Products Expo East”, in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. This year we’re also jumping at the opportunity to fetch some new connections in Mississauga, Ontario at The National Pet Industry Trade Show!
We’ve been growing at Source Nutraceutical for some time now. We recently added an additional Regulatory Affairs Specialist to the team and we wanted to take some time to introduce her. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to bring back our much requested series “Inside Source”.
With a specialty in food safety, Nicole plays a huge role in ensuring your product checks all the boxes to enter the market safely.
