  • Meeting NPC has been a significant benefit to my business. Within months of our first interaction, I was introduced to a company who was a perfect match for my expertise in business development and sales. The company is now a long-term client and we have a great working relationship. This intro is especially rewarding to me now that I have observed NPC’s sincere passion and dedication to helping this industry grow. They work tirelessly to find resources to help their members, and are very particular about the introductions they make. It’s inspiring to be part of that.

  • NPC has been one of our most valuable partners in launching Indezone Energy. Through constant feedback and by facilitating events and introductions to relevant experts, they helped us drive progress and establish our network in the natural health space. NPC has further provided critical support by financing our inventory, allowing us to scale our annual sales to over $100,000 organically after just one year.

    CEO, Ioffe Biotechnologies Inc.

  • Natural Products Canada have been instrumental in helping my company, Ikkuma, develop and launch our innovative new beverage line Zero dB. Initially, Natural Products Canada provided sage advice regarding regulatory matters and made the intros to companies that could help us commercialize. NPC also, through the NCN network, provided an opportunity to pitch Zero dB to a wider audience and attract potential investment. For companies who are starting out and aiming to compete on the world stage, having a trusted partner like NPC is invaluable.

    CEO, Ikkuma

  • FREDsense Technologies has developed water quality products to ensure a safe environment and clean drinking water via detection of chemicals such as Arsenic and Lead. Natural Products Canada helped us by making an introduction to a foreign investor interested in this space. This investor has conducted due diligence for the past few months and has recently expressed their interest in investing in our company. We are currently in the negotiation process with this investor.

  • Natural Products Canada has made a great impact on our business and the organization has a broad range of expertise from manufacturing advice to introductions to potential clients in their network. Their investment in Chinova has helped us commercialize and launch our products in the market and even hire employees to continue to scale and grow the business.

  • Working with NPC has connected my company with expertise in the natural products space enabling us to focus on projects that are most likely to succeed in the marketplace. Likewise, 3F Waste Recovery has benefitted from strategizing, developing milestones and concrete steps to take towards commercialization of our hydrolyzed cod collagen product.

  • …the impact of NPC investment and support of CanBiocin has been game changing. CanBiocin has now positioned itself to be an attractive ingredient supplier to world leading companies such as Diana Pet Foods (France), Nestle Purina (USA) and Ziwi Pet (New Zealand). The ongoing role of NPC for the growth and diversification of Canada’s natural products sector is not to be taken for granted.

    Jake Burlet

    CEO, CanBiocin

  • NPC introduced us to our sales broker – a powerhouse woman 20+ years in health retail who is generating sales and leads in weeks that we thought would take many months. And NPC has linked us into decision makers at extract companies that could represent a substantial opportunity for our company.
