Review of Nutrition Panel for compliance with CFIA

Have a food product label ready for our review?
Follow these easy steps.

1) Give us a call so we can discuss your project. From there:
2) Send us the following:
 the label (pdf format please)
 a description and dimensions for the packaging (bottle, box, pouch, etc)
 the unrounded nutrition information per 100 g (include density [g/ml] if it’s a liquid)
 the formula / processing information (optional but recommended – we can sign an NDA if you wish)
3) We will provide you with the project quote. Once approved, we proceed.
4) We send over the initial conversion based on the format of your current label so that your graphics company can easily make the updates.
5) Send us the new Canadian artwork for a final review.
6) Start shipping your product.

It is well understood that everything you tell us or send us is held strictly confidential…we don’t even share our client list with anyone.
