All prepackaged food products sold in Canada are required to be labelled with the identity and principal place of business of the company responsible for the product, such as the importer or manufacturer.
When a food product is wholly manufactured outside of Canada, the label must show that the product is imported. This information can be provided in one of three ways:
- The identity and principal place of business of the foreign manufacturer, or
- The statement 'imported for' or 'imported by' followed by the identity and principal place of business of the Canadian company;
- The identity and principal place of business of the Canadian company with the country of origin of the product.
For more information on labeling requirements in Canada please visit the Canadian Food Inspection Agency at www.inspection.gc.ca.

Quality & Safety
No. During the winter months in Canada, some cases of bottled water may freeze during transport and thaw out when placed on display in a retail outlet. From time-to-time during the freeze-thaw process, white flakes can be seen floating in some bottles. Retailers and consumers alike need not be concerned. These are flakes of calcium, which is a naturally-occurring mineral found in water that is essential for strong bones and teeth that plays an important role in blood clotting, muscle contraction, hormonal secretion, and normal nervous system function. These flakes develop during the freeze-thaw process when the calcium separates from other naturally-occurring minerals found in water. These flakes have no taste and leave no residue. Further, Health Canada is not aware of any substantiated evidence to suggest that freezing bottled water causes the release of toxic chemicals from the plastic. Any possible migration of chemicals from plastic water bottles is actually expected to be lower under freezing temperatures.
Our Consumer Care team would be happy to assist you and we invite you to give us a call at 1 800 387-4636. We encourage you to have the product information handy when you call. (Product Name, UPC, Manufacturing Code).
Our products go through stringent testing. To ensure the highest level of product quality and experience we encourage our consumers to follow the preparation instructions found on the packaging.
To help you make informed choices, major allergens present in a food are labeled in the ingredients list of this food, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and following our internal Nestlé guidelines even if present in small quantities.
In case of cross-contact with a major allergen that cannot be eliminated, a precautionary statement such as 'May contain [Allergen]' appears on the food label after the ingredient list.
In case of an allergy, make sure to read the label every time.

Nestlé Canada takes brand and consumer protection seriously. Recently, we became aware of fraudulent letters contacting consumers requesting personal information with a promise of financial gain. The cases reported identify a letter titled “Nestlé Canada Inc Research Program” stating that you have been selected to participate in a Customer Research/Mystery shopper program. A cheque in the name of the receiver is also enclosed with this letter. Consumers are then asked to contact a supposed Research Associate to cash the enclosed cheque.
Please be informed that these are fraudulent letters & cheques and we suggest that you not engage, and contact your local authorities. We ourselves have advised the authorities who are investigating the issue.
Nestlé Canada does not do business this way. We are in no way associated with these letters and cheques. Our name is being used fraudulently and without permission. PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THESE TEXT MESSAGES, EMAILS OR LETTERS WITH ANY INFORMATION.

We also recommend you report the incident to your local police.
Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes
In line with the World Health Organization (WHO) Guiding Principles for feeding Infant and Young Children during Emergencies, Nestlé does not donate infant formula to individuals or organizations. According to WHO and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), emergencies do not justify routine distribution and use of breast-milk substitutes, and conditions prevailing during emergencies tend to aggravate the health risks for infants that cannot be breastfed. As such, we did not donate infant formula in response to typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in the Philippines in 2013. Through our cooperation with government authorities and aid organizations we donated funds, 300,000 micronutrient-fortified, ready-to-eat and ready-to-drink products (no breastmilk substitutes) and clean water.
At Nestlé we firmly believe breastmilk is the best nutrition for infants. We are committed to the health and wellness of mothers and babies and support the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendation of six months exclusive breastfeeding, followed by the introduction of adequate nutritious complementary foods along with sustained breastfeeding up to two years of age and beyond. For infants who cannot be breastfed, infant formula is the only suitable breastmilk substitute recognized by the WHO.
We comply with the WHO Code as implemented by national governments everywhere in the world, as a minimum. We voluntarily apply our own stringent policy when it is stricter than national Code in 152 countries considered to be higher-risk in terms of infant mortality and malnutrition. Nestlé is the only infant formula company included in the FTSE4Good Index, which assesses our practices against a set of strict criteria. We transparently report on our progress on our corporate website where you can better understand our commitment to breastfeeding and those crucial first 1,000 days of life.
In 152 higher-risk countries, we do not give free supplies of infant and follow-up formula (for babies under 12 months of age) to health facilities, nor do we give free samples to mothers. In Canada, we do not offer promotional samples of infant formula to mothers unless specifically requested. Mothers who opt-in to the Nestlé Baby Program receive complimentary samples of infant formula along with coupons, promotional and other information.
No, Nestlé does not provide financial compensation to hospitals to use our formula.
