The Canadian food, beverage and natural health products sector, although small relative to our neighbor to the South, is universally considered to be highly lucrative. Being a unique market with our own specific consumer preferences, government regulations and other market considerations, it requires an in-depth understanding of these forces. The Canadian market also demands intense focus, commitment and discipline, not to mention strong relationships at the decision-making level with buying prospects.
Organizations looking to maximize their commercial outcomes in Canada partner with us for these very reasons. We have an intimate understanding of the key factors for success in Canada, born out of many years operating in the food, beverage and natural health products industry. Our relationships with decision-makers and influencers at Canada’s leading food, beverage and natural health product manufacturers enable us to shorten the sales cycles and get products to market quicker. Simply stated, we deliver exceptional results for our supplier partners.
CK Ingredients is dedicated and committed to sales and service excellence in Canada, coast-to-coast. We are not a typical or traditional distributor – we like to describe ourselves as a professional sales and marketing organization first-and-foremost, with warehousing and distribution capabilities. We assume responsibility for marketing and business development, regulatory guidance, warehousing, shipping, billing, collections and after-sales service, doing the heavy lifting in Canada so that our supplier partners can focus their finite resources on higher-priority markets. The model works!
Our ideal vendor partners supply innovative functional food ingredients or science-based IP-backed dietary supplement ingredients, and are organizations that value professionalism, co-operation, integrity and transparency in business at all times.
If you are planning to launch your specialty ingredient into the Canadian food, beverage or natural health products sector, or you have already entered the space but are not getting the results you expect, contact us to learn more about how we can work together.
CK Ingredients also now proudly serves the U.S. market with science-based functional and nutritional raw material solutions. Our core markets at present are bakery products, snacks, nutrition bars, meat analogs, dietary supplements and functional cosmetics. We are actively looking to align ourselves with suppliers of clean-label functional food ingredients as well as innovative science-based nutraceutical ingredients, who are looking for reliable and hard-working distributor partners in the U.S. market.
