Labelling requirements for processed fruit or vegetable products
Reference information

Table: other required markings for prepackaged processed fruit or vegetable products

The other required markings listed in this table apply to prepackaged processed fruit or vegetable products that are interprovincially traded, imported or exported, except for the labelling with "Keep Refrigerated" or "Keep Frozen", which applies to all levels of trade.

If a prepackaged processed fruit or vegetable product that is labelled with information required by sections 272 and 273 of the SFCR is placed inside of a second container and the resulting product is prepackaged food, other than consumer prepackaged food, the second container is not required to be labelled with those items of information.
