LOOKING FOR NEW GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES?
LOOK NORTH TO CANADA
Canada has some of the most loyal consumers of natural and organic products in North America. Canadians are faithful to the “true and tried” while always looking for “new and cutting edge” products. An article published on Statista (www.statista.com) titled Organic Packaged Foods Sales Value in Canada 2016-2023 forecasted 2023 organic packaged foods sales would reach $1.38 billion (USD).
From our innovative, independent Natural Food Stores to the ever-expanding demand of natural and organic foods in our Grocery Chains, Integra Brand Management secures placement that works for you. Canada is a growing market offering exciting potential growth for your brand.
A FEW THINGS UNIQUE TO
SELLING IN THE CANADIAN MARKET
There is a distinct difference in Canada West and Canada East. The West is skewed with many natural independent food chains and fewer Grocery chains. The East is where Grocery chains dominate although there are many established natural independent food stores and natural independent chains.
In addition to requiring packaging to be 50/50 English & French bilingual, Canada has unique laws about allowable label claims, RDA's and NFT layout requirements. We work with experienced regulatory companies and a Quebec translator that fully understands the intimate nuances of French spoken in Québec Canada.
Cost of Doing
While the overall cost of doing business with Mass & Grocery chains is more expensive in Canada than in the USA, there are fewer grocery chains to negotiate with. Most chains now stock natural products, many have dedicated natural products sections or integration in the conventional isles, and all are always looking for innovation, healthy and delicious.
