About TAG

A Canada-based company, TAG Canada provides the unique service of having food safety, public health and regulatory experts and resources on both sides of the border.

TAG Canada team members reside across Canada providing expertise in all matters related to the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations, Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), and Health Canada. We can assist your business with inspection questions, concerns and interventions; facility assessments, animal health, and imports and exports – as well as your Food Safety and Preventive Controls plans development and reviews, allergen and labelling policies and practices, and cannabis and pharmaceutical processes.

As an affiliate of The Acheson Group of the U.S., we have access to additional resources including expert microbiologists, epidemiologists, and legal counsel. Working with a Canadian company with U.S. affiliation south of the border means you are serviced by Canadians, paying Canadian dollars, with access to cross-border expertise for all your import and export needs.
