Selling in Canada
Puresource’s regulatory affairs team is kept up-to-date and informed with regulations that appear to be ever changing in Canada. If regulatory hurdles are limiting your ability to sell product in Canada, then let us direct you in the right direction. Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) are the two main branches of the Canadian government that regulate all products distributed by Puresource. Health Canada reports to the Minister of Health and the CFIA reports to the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.
We have provided some links that can help you understand how to sell your product in Canada. Puresource is familiar with distributing the following types of products.
