The guidelines for labelling imported meat products are essentially the same as those for the labels of Canadian meat products, with two important differences (7.21.1, Meat Hygiene Manual of Procedures):

  • "product of (country of origin)" is to appear in close proximity to the product description; it shall be at least half the height of the largest letter on the main panel; and
  • the inspection stamp or the statement of the exporting country must replace the Meat Inspection legend.
