LeanLife Health Inc. (CSE:LLP) announced today that it has hired external consultants to help to ensure that all of its omega-3 products meet relevant food safety requirements and designations in Canada and the US.
The company said this move is in addition to and will bolster its effort to obtain government authorization for production of omega-3 products at its Canadian manufacturing facility.
"I am pleased with the progress LeanLife has made toward obtaining the permits and approvals needed to manufacture our products as well as to meet the standards set forth by large commercial users of omega-3 ingredients," said Stan Lis, chief executive officer of LeanLife Health.
"The addition of third party consultants to this effort should enable us to obtain some of the approvals sooner, which would obviously be positive for our go-to-market strategy."
