Canadian functional food and nutraceutical companies are world leaders in quality and innovation. Canada is well positioned to become a leading supplier of functional foods and nutraceuticals to the world. Along with a food inspection system that is world renowned, Canada has an excellent international reputation for a pure, clean environment resulting in safe, high-quality food products.
