Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) consulted on the development of voluntary guidance for providing food information for foods sold to consumers through e-commerce from May 9 until July 8, 2022.
The intent of the consultation was to inform the development of voluntary guidance to help food retailers and other businesses provide food information to consumers so that consumers can make an informed purchasing decision. A wide variety of stakeholders and Canadian consumers were consulted to seek input on the:
- Proposed principles and approach for developing this guidance; and
