Origin claims on food labels
Multiple country of origin statements

The use of a voluntary multi-country of origin statement (e.g. "Product of France and United States") is not acceptable. In this context, a product can only have one country of origin, which, at a minimum, is the country of last substantial transformation. All claims must be truthful and not misleading; declaring multiple countries of origin on the label may result in false information.

A blended claim, such as "A blend of [Naming the country] (naming the product) and [Naming the country] (naming the product)", may be considered (e.g. "A blend of Brazilian and American soybean oil").

Guidance on the use of a voluntary multi-country of origin statement that includes or makes reference to Canada can be found below in the Guidelines for "Product of Canada" and "Made in Canada" claims.
