Health Canada has proposed changes to the nutrition information on food labels, based on earlier input from parents and consumers, as well as the newest scientific information. These changes are intended to make it easier to read and understand labels and help consumers make healthy food choices. Interested stakeholders have until September 11, 2014, to submit their comments to Health Canada on the proposed regulatory changes.
For more information, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) has released a report
and a follow-up report
. In addition, CFIA has organized a webinar
on the changes to be held on Friday, August 22. Registration information is below.
