Hello, I was wondering if anyone can advise on condensing multiple product ingredient information on small packaging. Our company is a bakery and we plan on packing our cakes into a 3 slice container. However, the container doesn't have a lot of space to put ingredient information and the customer would like the product to be as visible as possible. 

https://www.desserth...r-quarter-cake/   (This packaging is very similar to the one we have). So I was wondering if the ingredient can be a singular, combination of all 3 flavours of cakes (red velvet, chocolate, vanilla butter cream) or if they have to be listed separately. Same with the nutritional facts table. If that is not an option, can I take out the common ingredients and just list the unique ones afterwards ie. Common Ingredients: Sugar, Flour, Egg, Margarine. Chocolate Cake: Dark chocolate chips, Milk chocolate....Red Velvet: Cocoa powder, Allura red...etc. Just a note, I am following the Canadian regulations. Thank you.

I could not find an exemption for your example   Multiple ingredient lists

There should be one list of ingredients for each different kind of food in a multi-pack product in both official languages. These declarations must all use the appropriate Canadian ingredient and component common names in accordance with the Food and Drug Regulations or the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations. For further details, refer to common name.
