Canadian group to certify plant-based SKUs


Canadian consumers will have a handy way to identify plant-based products thanks to a new certification system that Plant-Based Foods of Canada is rolling out at retailers across the nation, according to a news release.


The group has partnered with the Plant-Based Foods Association, based in the U.S., to make the PBFA’s Certified Plant Based seal available north of the border for meat and poultry alternatives, as well as plant-based seafood, egg, milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and ice cream.


“We want to make it easy for Canadian consumers to confidently identify plant-based products as the plant-based food industry continues to grow and new products enter the market," said Leslie Ewing, PBFC executive director. “The Certified Plant Based seal provides assurance that products contain no animal-derived ingredients.”
