CPMA works closely with Health Canada to provide nutrition information for use in fresh fruit and vegetable labelling in the Canadian marketplace. With Health Canada’s assistance, CPMA developed Nutrition Facts: Most Commonly Consumed Fruits and Vegetables in Canada. This resource includes eligible nutrient content claims, nutrition facts data, and serving sizes for each commodity listed.

- The nutrition data provided in the Canadian Nutrition Facts for the Most Commonly Consumed Fresh Fruits and Vegetables in Canada, has been adapted from USFDA and other reliable data for voluntary use in a Canadian Nutrition Facts Table or to provide nutrition information at retail. The serving sizes, calculations and allowable nutrient content claims have been determined under the direction of Health Canada.
- CPMA makes every effort to ensure that reliable information is provided but cannot accept any responsibility for any errors or omissions no matter how caused.
- A label owner is responsible for the accuracy of their label values, therefore, it is important that all pertinent acts and regulations be consulted prior to developing package and nutrition labelling for the Canadian marketplace.
- CPMA shall not be liable for any damages, loss, expense or claim of loss arising from the use, or reliance on the information.
CPMA would like to thank Health Canada and their staff from the Food Directorate’s Bureau of Nutritional Sciences, Nutrition Regulations and Standards Division and the Nutrition Research Division for their valued support, direction and assistance with this project.
