Hi there

I have come across your information regarding your consulting services for natural health products. I see you provide site license consulting with GMP training, as well as QA services.

I am in the process of working through obtaining a site license with health canada, I am wondering what your consulting fee’s may be in addition to your GMP/QAP training.

I am looking at these as I would like to open a small business in Nanaimo, B.C selling a natural health product, and I am looking for a consultant service to help obtain the needed licenses with health canada.

I would appreciate receiving any information you have, and pricing. I look forward to hearing from you.
