Products that may be classified as novel foods in Canada include those resulting from a manufacturing process not previously used for that food, those lacking a history of safe use as a food, or those that have been genetically modified. All novel foods are assessed by Health Canada prior to sale.

Our regulatory team can help you correctly classify your product as a novel food, assist you in facilitating a pre-submission consultation meeting with Health Canada if desired, and guide you in filing a Novel Food Application to the highest degree of quality.
