In the case of products produced before NPN regulations, it is a matter of legality. Health Canada is now enforcing NPN (Natural Product Number) compliance. If a product is being sold without a NPN, fines for both the manufacturer and the store can range up to $5 million. As we cannot afford this price tag, and we also do not want to put our customers in a precarious legal or financial position, either, we are choosing to abide by Health Canada’s regulations. We hope to bring back the “old favourites” as soon as possible; however, our ability to do so depends on Health Canada’s status of these products. As these products become available, we will keep you updated. When making order requests, it is not a bad idea to ask if there is a more up to date price list available, so that you can always be aware of upcoming products.
If the product was produced by Life Choice with a NPN and was later discontinued, it was probably due to either a lack of demand, or difficulty in acquiring the needed raw materials. If demand resurges enough, we might be able to bring these products back! However, it is also possible that regulatory changes affected product availability. Either way, if you are missing one of these products, let us know; we can provide updates on the status of the product, or suggest alternatives.
