This seminar aimed to introduce American food manufacturers to Canadian food labelling regulatory requirements. The Canadian specificity with respect to language requirements, the declaration of net quantity, nutritional labelling and nutrient related claims, as well as ingredient and allergen declarations were presented. Requirements specific to the labelling of certain commodities were also discussed: the mandatory enrichment of flour, and the labelling requirements of fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and fish.
