Standard Label Details

Nutrition Facts Table - Based on our database nutrition analysis of your recipe formulation or your laboratory data, along with your package size and label dimensions, Food Labels Canada determines the serving size, applies rounding rules, calculates % Daily Values, and then prepares a Nutrition Facts Table that is fully compliant. You will receive a graphic file to provide to your printer, artist, or package designer, along with back-up documentation for your file.

 

Ingredient Statements (English and French) - A prepared clear, concise, and consumer-friendly ingredient statement that is based on your recipe formulation and raw material specifications. We review your formulation to ensure all ingredients are permitted in Canada and food additives are within the prescribed maximum levels. The text of the statement can be provided directly to your printer, artist, or package designer, along with back-up documentation for your file.

 

Allergen Compliance - Correct text for an allergen statement and advise on any necessary label warnings for ingredients that may pose a health risk.

 

Product Naming & Label Claims - We will provide regulatory guidance for naming your product to ensure that the product identity you use will comply with CFIA standards of identity or common/usual names for non-standard foods.

Health Claims - Provide guidance on nutrient content claims, health claims, and structure/function claims.

 

Organic Claims - Regulated label statements (organic, natural, etc.) as a part of this package.

 

Product Grades - Depending on the food commodity, grades are either mandatory or may be used on a voluntary basis. We will advise if there are prescribed grade standards for your product .

 

Country of Origin labelling - In Canada, there are mandatory requirements for certain food products to indicate the country of origin on their labels. Companies may also make origin claims to highlight the origins of a product or ingredient in a product.

 

Net Quantity/ Standard container size - In addition to the net quantity declaration, some processed foods are subject to standardized container sizes. We will advise if there are prescribed sizes for your product.

 

Label Layout Instructions - You will receive a written set of instructions that your package designer can follow when designing your label prototype. This will include information about placement and minimum type size for all required label components.
