The Canadian Food Label

  • Training

  • 60 Minutes
  • Region: Canada
  • Compliance Online
  • ID: 5974963
This webinar will provide an overview of the relevant statutes, including the Food and Drugs Act and its regulations and the Consumer Packaging and Labeling Act and its regulations. Core labeling requirements will be outlined and discussed, as will the rules around making voluntary label claims. Finally, an overview of Health Canada’s modernization makeover as it relates to labeling will provide insight into possible future reform, including proposals relating to the nutrition facts table and ingredient list.

Why Should You Attend:

This advanced webinar is aimed at all companies involved in the manufacture, advertising and sale of foods and beverages (including external advisors and consultants) that do business, or want to do business, in Canada.

These companies should be aware of the strict rules around the Canadian food label, and the penalties for being found offside these rules so that appropriate business decisions can be made. More and more, the food industry is innovating and pushing the boundaries and it is important that businesses be able to take appropriate risks to keep up with the competition without losing focus of the rules and restrictions.

An error can be costly: Health Canada’s enforcement provisions include the ability to impose strict penalties and jail time, order a stop sale and/or product recall. The costs of doing business are becoming increasingly high, but for companies that can navigate the system appropriately, the benefits of innovative marketing campaigns are numerous.
