Toronto, ON, Canada (PRWEB) November 28, 2013
The Canadian regulatory landscape for importing and selling Natural Health Products (NHP) – nutraceuticals, vitamins, supplements or any product deemed a NHP by Health Canada – is extremely complex. While the current regulations have been in effect for many months, on December 1, 2013, Health Canada will begin strictly enforcing these new 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.
“Whether it’s a product that is new to the Canadian marketplace or one that you’ve been bringing into the country for years is irrelevant. If the product’s manufacturing, importation, sale and distribution methods don’t comply with Health Canada regulations there will be serious implications” says Steven Page, President at Stalco Inc. “We are receiving calls daily from companies that have long-standing successful businesses, with an established customer base, and a new customer acquisition model in place that are struggling to navigate the rigorous requirements laid out by Health Canada. What’s at risk? Significant revenue, your current customers…your business. By leveraging our regulatory expertise, our existing licenses, and our relationships with Health Canada our clients are avoiding the risks so many companies are falling prey to.”
Recognizing the impact that a Health Canada imposed suspension of product or ban on future importation could have on its clients’ business, Jumbleberry has chosen to align with Stalco Inc. as an authorized Canadian logistics and regulatory partner. Jumbleberry is a leading Cost per Acquisition (CPA) Network that specializes in generating health and beauty product sales for their clients in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. Given their diverse client base, the team at Jumbleberry understands the value in having qualified and experienced strategic partner like Stalco guide their clients through the regulatory complexities in Canada.
“With Health Canada’s strict regulatory policies governing all aspects of the NHP category, we know it’s imperative that our clients complete the appropriate paperwork and get the required Health Canada issued licenses in place to ensure that they avoid any unexpected costs or interruption of their ad campaigns and continue to benefit from Canada’s higher customer retention rate” says Steve Jukes – Founding Partner & Executive VP at Jumbleberry. Both Page and Jukes realize the value and uniqueness of Stalco’s ability to navigate this network of restrictions consistently and efficiently without delays. As Jukes says “Trust is the one of the most important aspects of our clients’ business, so it is imperative that the consumer receives their order with no risk of delay due to cross border logistics or regulatory issues.”
