On July 20, 2022, Health Canada published amendments to the Food and Drug Regulations (“FDR”) creating a requirement for prepackaged foods whose contents meet or exceed certain thresholds of saturated fat, sodium and/or sugars to include a symbol on the front label of their packages. Your manufacturing business has until December 31, 2025 to change labels on prepackaged foods to comply with the new requirements. Develop your action plan with Health Canada’s recommendations to:
- Implement guidance on the FOP nutrition symbol.
- Review the conditions of use for various nutrient content claims.
- Identify exemptions and prohibitions.
- Apply other amendments and future labelling requirements.
Address the unique challenges posed by FOP regulatory changes to achieve compliance and sustainability for your business.
