A call to action for Canadians
Health Canada’s new regulations will decimate Natural Health Products, causing skyrocketing prices and the disappearance of beloved products in Canada.
Health Canada is strangling Natural Health Products (NHPs) in red tape that will increase prices and mean fewer products on store shelves. 1 in 5 brands said they are seriously leaving Canada
HOW ELSE WILL THESE CHANGES IMPACT CANADIAN NHPs?
Increased Price and Lack of Availability
Many brands you use will see a dramatic price increase or stop existing in Canada altogether. 1/5 brands said they are seriously considering leaving Canada.
Decreased Product Choice
Complicated and unnecessary changes will force brands to evaluate their product line and drop products that are too expensive or unprofitable, resulting in less variety. In a recent survey, over 70% of brands said they would have to pull product from market if changes go through.
No Love For Local
Small, local businesses that cannot afford to navigate increasingly complex regulations and lengthy approval processes will be priced out of business. 83% of companies said it will be challenging to absorb the costs of these changes.
Exciting new products and international brands will likely not come to Canada because the regulatory burden will be to severe.
New regulations are increasing the amount of packaging (for the same amount of product) reduce recyclability, adversely impacting the environment.
