Products We Import
At TFB & Associates Limited, we import all classes of trade! Through advanced market research and planning, we evaluate your products and cross-reference our strategies with our contacts in the trade.
After fine-tuning the details, there isn’t a retail group in the country that we don’t distribute to! We handle the import, freight and customs clearance so that you don’t have to.
With a variety of products from all around the world, our brands are made up of the following categories:
Our Importing Process
At TFB & Associates Limited, our importing process is designed to offer big-business solutions with small-business charm. With over 30 years of experience, our family-owned business is known for achieving industry-leading results.
Through a variety of systematic phases, our industry experts are well-versed in providing your products with the personalized care they deserve.
Phase 1 - Research
The first phase revolves around category research, pricing research, competitive analysis and market research.
This phase exposes the current climate of the industry pertaining to each specific product.
If the executive team recognizes a beneficial opportunity, they will then move in to phase 2 of the evaluation.
Phase 2 - Packaging
Phase 2 dives into the regulatory and bilingual packaging requirements for the current Canadian market.
By ensuring that your product packaging is compliant, we are able to prepare your products for importing and national distribution.
As health and environmental concerns have caused packaging and labelling regulations to tighten up over the past few years, our in-house professionals will always make sure that your products are up-to-speed.

Phase 3 is where we finally get to the paperwork to start importing your products to Canada!
