KELOWNA and VANCOUVER — The Canadian Association of Medical Mask Manufacturers (CAMMM) announces that Inno Lifecare of Vancouver, BC has joined as a third founding member, along with Breathe Medical Manufacturing of Kelowna, BC and The Canadian Shield of Waterloo, Ontario.

CAMMM’s main goals are: 1) to help enhance the economic health of the medical mask manufacturing industry in Canada; and 2) to help build an established standards and regulatory system to protect Canadians.

Inno Lifecare is a division of innofoods, a global food company based in Vancouver, BC. In 2020, the company established Inno Lifecare to produce medical masks, and their surgical N95 respirators were given Health Canada authorization for sale in March 2021. Inno Lifecare’s PPE offers blockchain traceability, adapted from the company’s food traceability platform—designed in-house—that gives end consumers full reassurance on product quality and specifications.

On joining CAMMM as the third founding member, Inno Lifecare CEO and Founder Jae Park said: “Inno Lifecare is dedicated to putting Canadians first. This means not only producing safe, Canadian-made PPE, but also playing a leading role in establishing standards across our industry and supporting Canadian manufacturing and Canadian jobs.”

Over the coming months, CAMMM will work directly with key stakeholders and various levels of government to establish standards and regulations for the medical mask manufacturing industry.

Canadian companies, organizations, individuals, and suppliers within the industry are welcome and encouraged to join the association.
