The Global Leader in Hemp Ingredients Since 1998

Food Safety

Food Safety and Quality Standards are a cornerstone of our business.

Why We're Unique

Hemp Oil Canada was incorporated in 1998 and opened Canada’s first hemp-exclusive seed processing facility. 

We’ve led the hemp industry by setting food safety and quality standards and creating new hemp food ingredients to meet our customers’ growing needs. You can expect industry-leading product specifications and food safety standards from Hemp Oil Canada.

Food Safety Standards


Quality starts in the field. With a North American supply chain and traceability from seed to shelf, Hemp Oil Canada can ensure quality at every phase of production – from seed to shelf.

In addition to holding Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) accreditation, Hemp Oil Canada also holds “AA” rating under the British Retail Consortium (BRC) standard for both production facilities. 

This rating puts Hemp Oil Canada in the top 1% of North American companies for food safety best practices.

Hemp Oil Canada Heat Treatment

Heat Treatment

Hemp Oil Canada, the leader in quality hemp ingredients, is thrilled to announce the addition of a heat treatment system to our current BRC AA certified facility.

Hemp Oil Canada is the only North American hemp ingredient supplier to provide a third party validated 5-log kill step.

The addition of a heat treatment system comes one year after announcing that our complete line of hemp seeds, oil and protein powder have received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). This was also a significant first for the hemp industry, as Hemp Oil Canada was the only company to proactively gather and provide the scientific evidence necessary to affirm this sought-after Food and Drug Administration designation.

Since 1998, Hemp Oil Canada has maintained a leadership position within the hemp industry. We are committed to leading by example and setting new standards for quality as well as innovating with new hemp food ingredients to meet our customers’ growing needs.
