CFIA Proposal – Food Labelling
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is seeking feedback on proposed options to modernize the food labelling system. An online questionnaire is now available and will remain open until June 30, 2015.
This questionnaire is part of the second phase of consultations for the CFIA’s Food Labelling Modernization initiative and presents specific options for comment in the four key areas of focus:
- Roles, responsibilities and partnerships
- Policy and program development
- Service delivery
For example, options for revising the format of best before dates, reviewing food class names (i.e., “vegetable oil” or “flavour”), and changing the required contact information for food manufacturers. A summary report of the first consultation phase is available on the CFIA website.
For any questions, please contact CFIA-Modernisation-ACIA@inspection.gc.ca.
