We offer to help you with:

Competitors’ Field Research:

  • We often travel abroad and attend food shows and, on those occasions, we’re conducting field research on specialty food products and local cuisine. Some reports are available on our website, for a minimal fee, and we can also conduct ad hoc customized research on your product category.
  • Here is what one of our customers, ÉPICEA had to say about our recent Norway report: “A must-have that gives a ton of ideas to develop new Nordic products. Simply North's report allowed us to draw inspiration from Norwegian trends to initiate our thinking about new product creation. The quality of the report is remarkable and goes very well with EPICÉA's philosophy of the perpetual quest to innovate and distinguish itself. Many thanks and congratulations to Simply North.”
    See more details about our Norway report here.

Food Labeling – FDA and Health Canada Compliant Packaging

We have already helped several companies with their Canada-compliant bilingual labels.

    • We are fully bilingual English-French.
    • We are a food producer ourselves, registered with the FDA, and selling specialty food in a number of US states.
    • We understand the differences between the label requirements for the US and the Canadian market, including the recent design changes of nutritional facts tables in both countries.
  • We work with experts when your labeling project requires additional resources (labeling lawyers, nutritional analysis labs, professional translators, customer research, etc.).
  • We’ve also designed and printed a number of innovative packages, such as stamped linen bags, gift trio boxes and more.
