Natural Health Products

Natural Health Products (NHPs) including personal care products (soaps, lotions, topical creams), nutriceuticals, vitamins, dietary and nutritional supplements ie. injestibles)  are an exciting and emerging ndustry. Whether your company is a raw material supplier, manufacturer, importer, distributor, private label, retailer and/or wholesaler you have unique exposures due to the varying ingredients and use of the products. Third party bodily injury claims, judgements and defense costs can be financially devastating to a company. Having adequate general and product liability coverage is essential for those in this industry.

Companies selling both domestically and internationally have created additional exposures that need to be addressed. We can provide coverage for Canada, Canada / USA or World-wide.

Health Canada's Food Directorate and its Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) are responsible regulating the market. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) monitors and enforces regulatory compliance of foods (including functional foods), while Health Canada has the same responsibility for NHPs.

NHPs are naturally occurring substances used to restore or maintain good health. They are often made from plants, but can also be made from animals, microorganisms and marine sources. They come in a wide variety of forms, such as tablets, capsules, tinctures, solutions, creams, ointments and drops.
