Government of Canada launches consultation on guidelines for simulated meat and poultry products 


Dec 03, 2020

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is launching a consultation today on proposed updates to guidelines for industry on simulated meat, simulated poultry products and certain plant-based protein foods, and is encouraging industry and consumers alike to submit their views by December 3, 2020.

The proposed updates to the guidelines seek to clarify what constitutes simulated meat or poultry products in accordance with the Food and Drug Regulations and Safe Food for Canadians Regulations. The guidelines outline the rules for labelling, advertising, composition and fortification for such products. Clearer guidelines will better support industry in their understanding and application of the regulatory requirements.
