Q & A

Some people are confused, even worried, about agri-food regulatory compliance requirements. Some of the questions people bring to us include:

Product specific
  • Are we compliant? Do we risk enforcement action? How do we fix this?
  • Is the composition of this product compliant?
  • Where can we get the label reviewed?

Answer: IFFL conducts product composition and food label reviews on an ongoing basis, for both Canadian flag Canada, the American flag USA and, depending on the category, the European Union flag EU.

Documentation (FSVP, PCP) of manufacturing food safety regimes
  • “Can IFFL provide us with a American flag FSVP document?” Answer: Yes, we can – see below.
  • “Can IFFL create a Canadian flag PCP for us?” Answer: Yes, we can – see below.
Regulatory consultation support and advice

“The government has published proposed and broad-sweeping regulations. Can IFFL guide us as we formulate a response?”

Answer: Definitely, including customized research to provide the necessary evidence a federal agency would be looking for, in support of a response.

Multijurisdictional analysis and regulatory impact studies

“We need to know the regulations pertinent to our product in several countries. Further, is the regulatory climate in a particular jurisdiction friendly or unfavourable to our product offering? Is this something IFFL is skilled at?”

Answer: Yes, IFFL has been conducting multijurisdictional analysis for 30 years. Our working knowledge of the regulations and our business experience provides us with the unique set of skills to provide this service.

Market assessments and evaluations
  • What would be a price range for our introductory product?
  • Have we identified all potential competitors?
  • How do our product attributes compare with those of competitive products?

Answer: IFFL and our associates have conducted several market assessments in the agri-food sector – from pesticides to finished foods. Due to our longstanding reputation for integrity and confidentiality, we are successful at attaining market interviews with industry leaders, which in turn enriches the relevancy of the final report.
