We make

Nutritious,
Delicious Food

We’re on a mission to address the most pressing diet-related health issues we face as a society.

We’ve been changing and improving taste, nutrition, affordability and sustainability of our products. We believe that the future of protein is cleaner, tastier and nutritionally superior.

Eating nutritious food is important

Understanding how to read food labels and knowing the right amount of food to eat each day is important in maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Here’s how we’re helping Canadians:

1. Making easier-to-read labels

We’re simplifying and increasing the legibility of our packaging and making the nutritional labels simpler and easier to read. This way, you can compare nutritional information of our products more quickly and easily. Our Maple Leaf Natural Selections® products carry our ingredient list on the front of the package!

2. Focusing on the facts

We partnered with Health Canada, Retail Council of Canada, Food and Consumer Products of Canada, Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers and several leading food and beverage companies to launch the “Focus on the Facts” nutrition labelling education initiative.

We aim to help Canadians understand and use the Nutrition Facts table on prepared food packaging, with a focus on “Serving Size” and “Percent Daily Value.”

3. Providing better nutritional information

On our brands’ websites, we post easy-to-consume content to help consumers access nutritional information on products they love.
