Food Labelling In Canada

Recommended Posts

For all those who live in Canada, there is a new regulation for food labelling. At the end of this year, it will be mandatory for all Canadian products to indicate potential allergens on the labels. This is definitely a step in the right direction (and it will make our lives a lot easier).

Don't get too excited yet...the regulation is only "proposed". And given that our government has just ground to a halt because of the election call, nothing will happen for a long long time. And sadly, this is not a priority for Stephen Harper.

Here's what it says on the Health Canada website:

"Health Canada is publishing its proposed regulatory amendments in Canada Gazette, Part I, on July 26, 2008 to allow for public comment. Health Canada will take into consideration any comments received during the 90-day comment period before bringing the final regulations forward and publishing them in the Canada Gazette, Part II."
