The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) launched the Food Labelling Modernization initiative in June 2013. Feedback from Phase I engagement (2013-2014) helped to identify the key issues on the food labelling system. In the Phase II engagement (2015), CFIA presented proposed options to modernize the system.
Based on what it heard during Phases I and II, the CFIA developed key proposals to modernize food labelling and carried out Phase III engagement from December 2016 to March 2017.
CFIA has completed Phase III of the Food Labelling Modernization consultations and a “What We Heard Report” has been published. CFIA collected feedback from consumers, industry, CFIA staff and other stakeholders on proposals to modernize Canada’s food labelling system.
The “What We Heard Report” can be found on the CFIA’s Consultations – Food Labelling Modernization Initiative webpage.
