Why Need for Food & Beverage Regulatory Compliance in Canada and USA?

Health Canada monitors non-health and safety regulations related to food packaging, labelling, and advertising in Canada. FDA in USA regulates all foods and food ingredients for sale except poultry, meat, and certain processed egg products. Failure to meet agencies’ regulatory compliance will lead to heavy penalties. Your products may be banned from sale in the traditional or online market. To ensure that your products comply with Health Canada and FDA’s regulations, you must develop foods with enhanced nutritional value, nutrient information in a standardized format, and meet label compliance. Some regulatory requirements are specific to certain food products, such as seafood, low-acid canned food, or juice whereas other requirements apply to all food businesses.
