Want to buy organic food

Labels and advertising can help.

The amount of certified organic content in a product determines how organic information can be displayed.

Single ingredient (e.g. strawberries), or multi-ingredient foods (e.g. strawberry jam) with 95% or more organic content

  • Product can be labelled or advertised as "organic"
  • Canada Organic Logo can be on product packaging

Multi-ingredient foods with 70% to less than 95% organic content

  • Product can be labelled "Contains X% organic ingredients"
  • Canada Organic Logo is not allowed

Multi-ingredient foods with less than 70% organic content

  • May only identify organic content in the list of ingredients
  • No claims about organic content can be on the product packaging
  • Canada Organic Logo is not allowed
