SmartLabel™ Extract

Today’s consumer is a savvier, more informed consumer, looking for products that align with their values or dietary requirements and contribute to their health and well-being.

Food & Consumer Products of Canada's (FCPC) SmartLabel™ initiative leverages smart devices and other means, to help brand owners offer consumers information about hundreds of product attributes, such as nutrition and ingredients as well as facts that go well beyond the label like environmental, religious and sustainability factors.

GS1 Canada can help brand owners participate in SmartLabel™ through our value-added service SmartLabel™ Extract.
