Toronto, ON (PRWEB) November 02, 2013
Stalco Inc., a full-service Canadian distribution company specializing in importation, regulatory compliance, inventory management, and fulfillment of health and beauty products, has announced the full integration of Lime Light CRM. This partnership follows several years of successful collaboration between the two organizations, optimizing end-to-end service for USA Nutraceutical & Skin Care products distributing in the Canadian marketplace.
The Canadian regulatory landscape for importing and selling Nutraceuticals – vitamins, supplements or any product deemed a Natural Health Product (NHP) by Health Canada – is extremely complex. On December 1, 2013, Health Canada will begin strictly enforcing a new set of highly regulated rules governing the manufacture, importation, sale and distribution of natural products in the Canadian marketplace. Strict enforcement at all levels of the importation and manufacturing processes will be implemented, with all Natural Health Products expected to have Health Canada issued licenses in place as well as complete adherence to the rules governing formulation and labeling.
“We are entering the most highly regulated period in the country’s history. And, what many US companies don’t realize is that failure to comply is seen by Health Canada as jeopardizing the health of Canadians, a very serious offense punishable by everything from hefty fines, enforced stop sale and suspension of product, to immediate recall, and potential bans on future importation of other products. In some instances even criminal charges could be imposed”, says Steven Page, Stalco Inc Founder.
Having seen clients struggling to understand, navigate and comply with Canada’s regulatory environment first hand, Lime Light CRM has chosen to align with Stalco Inc. as its authorized Canadian logistics and regulatory partner. “The number of advertisers looking into the Canadian market is increasing each day. As we know, this is a market that is strictly regulated, for this reason we are glad to have partnered with a full service Canadian fulfillment company such as Stalco Inc. who has the much needed level of expertise and optimization to be successful in this space and which can significantly benefit our clients”, says Rick Del Rio, CEO and Founder of Lime Light CRM.
Stalco has over 20 years experience successfully navigating the Canadian regulatory environment for a diverse range of brands, from unknown start-ups to celebrity brands like Suzanne Somers. Not a traditional fulfillment company, Stalco works exclusively with health and beauty products offering deep expertise in the category. “Stalco’s ability to setup and manage the regulatory licensing has been paramount in our entry and continued business efforts in Canada. Their level of administrative support has allowed our staff to keep fluid and consistent communication regarding all business matters”, says T. Ferneau of Netco Media, one of the many customers already benefiting from the collaboration of Stalco and Lime Light CRM.
