The new Safe Food for Canadians Act consolidates the authorities of the Fish Inspection Act, the Canada Agricultural Products Act, the Meat Inspection Act, and the food provisions of the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act.
The Safe Food for Canadians Act aims to make food as safe as possible for Canadian families, protect consumers by targeting unsafe practices, implement tougher penalties for activities that put health and safety at risk, provide better control over imports, institute a more consistent inspection regime across all food commodities, and strengthen food traceability. Under the new requirements food processors will be open to inspection by the government and deadlines for requirements are being rolled out throughout the next few years.
