Labelling requirements for fresh fruits and vegetables
Organic products are regulated under Part 13 of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR).
For specific information on organic labelling requirements, refer to Organic Claims.
The SFCR state that if the Canada organic logo appears on the label of imported food, the name of the country of origin must be immediately preceded by the words "Product of", or "Imported" which must appear in close proximity to the logo [354(d), SFCR]. However, the declaration of "Imported" alone does not fulfil the "country of origin" requirement for imported fresh fruits or vegetables under section 269 of the SFCR. See Country of Origin for more information about fresh fruits or vegetables grown in a country other than Canada.
