- Gathering Information
The label on a honey container in a Canadian retail outlet should include the word "Honey" or, possibly, an indication of a floral source, such as "Alfalfa Honey." It also needs to state the grade, the net weight, the name and address of the honey dealer and the registration number of the packer, as well as the nutrition facts table. The label should also identify the country of origin and indicate whether the honey is creamed, liquid or pasteurized.
All of this information must be in English and French, and needs to be of a minimum type size and located in specific areas of the label where it's easily found and read by consumers.
Honey sold at a farm gate or farmers' market does not need to meet the same labelling requirements because it's usually coming directly from the producer.
