▼ Canadian Food Labelling Updates...

FREE FOOD SUITE® SUMMARY:

On June 13, 2015, Health Canada published proposed regulations that would significantly change the way foods are labelled in Canada. Changes include among other things, nutrition, ingredient and allergen labelling.

Key features of the changes include new serving size rules, changes to sugar labelling in an NFt and ingredient list, more prescriptive colour labelling. For the first time, Canada introduces regulations on cautionary allergen statements. A new health claim for fruit and vegetables and heart disease is also proposed.

An executive and technical summary of changes is made available for those who are interested.
