Canada - Food Labelling Consultation

28 Jun 2019 11:41 AM | Anonymous

On June 22, 2019, the Government of Canada published proposed changes to labelling requirements in the Food and Drug Regulations (FDR) and the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR). A public consultation on proposed amendments to the FDR and the SFCR under the Food Labelling Modernization (FLM) initiative is open until Sept 4. 

The amendments would provide consistency around food labels. This would allow consumers to make more informed decisions on what foods they buy. The proposals include several changes to provide clearer information on food labels; including where imported food comes from, what the food contains, and how long the quality of the food will last.

The consultation specifically wants to hear views on acceptable statements for origin labelling of imported products
