Throughout the world, new rules applying to
packaging material and transportation equipment
are progressively being adopted. From now on,
pallets, containers, and other wooden packing
supplies used to export your products must comply
with phytosanitary regulations, in addition to
being approved by an organization recognized by
the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
Laurentian Wood can provide you, right now, with all
the products complying with the new regulations.
In order to supply products that comply with the
new standards regarding wooden material used in
packaging and transportation, Laurentian Wood uses an
effective drying and sterilization treatment on
pallets. The treatment prevents the spreading of
parasites, larvae, and fungus causing mildew, in
addition to reducing the weight and humidity level
To sterilize wooden pallets, Laurentian Wood uses
a heat treatment approved by the CFIA where
pallets are heat treated until the internal
temperature of the wood reaches a minimum of 56°C
for at least thirty minutes.
The power of a Leader

Wood has seen three of its plants certified by the CFIA

As always. Laurentian Wood has shown its desire and
capacity to offer customers products that comply
with the highest standards in the industry.
