Labelling requirements for maple products
Legibility

Mandatory information must be clearly and prominently shown on the label of prepackaged maple syrup and maple products and readily discernible and legible to the purchaser under the customary conditions of purchase and use [208, SFCR; A.01.016, FDR].

For consumer prepackaged maple syrup and maple products, the minimum type size of characters for mandatory labelling information is generally 1.6 mm in height based on the height of the lower case "o" [210, 211, SFCR]. The minimum type size for the net quantity declaration is based on the area of the principal displace surface [229(1)(a), SFCR]. Refer to Net Quantity for more information on type size requirements specific to net quantity declaration.

For additional information on type size requirements, refer to Legibility and Location.
