Importing Food Products

According to the CFIA, over 70% of food products sold in Canada are imported and most of the domestic products contain imported ingredients. Raw ingredients and food products are imported from an estimated 190 countries, which have varying levels of food safety controls. To address this and to address the rise in food safety incidences involving imported products, new regulations are being proposed for the Imported Food Sector (IFS).  These new regulations will have a significant impact on any importer of non federally registered food products.

NSF-GFTC's regulatory experts help you understand the new requirements and stay ahead of the curve so your supply chain can keep flowing.

NSF-GFTC will help you with any of the following:

  • In-house presentations outlining critical import details and impact on your business
  • Consulting and guidance on meeting new import regulations
  • Consulting support with development of your recall plan,  preventive food safety control plan (PFSCP), and other elements
  • Regulatory scanning to keep you up-to-date as regulations come into force
