Examples of products that do not qualify:
You would not be able to use the Made in Alberta label on products that are imported into Alberta and repackaged for sale. Likewise, the label could not be used on Alberta products or ingredients that are processed and substantially transformed outside the province and returned here for sale. For example:
- Dry Cake Mix: Cake mix ingredients are processed and packaged by a Saskatchewan agri-food company (co-packer) for your Alberta company.
- Pork Sausage: Alberta hogs are sent to a federally registered facility in British Columbia to be butchered and processed into sausage.
- Bread: A large Canadian agri-food company produces and packages bread outside of Alberta.
