The new fruit and vegetable labeling requirement in the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations will affect ALL consumer packaged items and significantly impact the fresh produce industry. The labeling requirement will come into effect January 2019, and Western Growers and the Canadian Produce Marketing Association need your input to demonstrate how significant of an impact this regulation will have on the industry.
The Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) has been in discussion with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) regarding the potential impacts to business, including U.S. exporters, on this new requirement. To assist CPMA, a partner with whom Western Growers has worked closely with over many years, we urge you to please complete this very brief survey by November 16.
With only five questions, this survey will only take a moment of your time. The data collected will assist CPMA in their further discussions with CFIA in an effort to reach a resolution to this costly regulation.
