In general, mandatory information is required to be presented in both English and French. Certain products produced and/or packaged and labelled at retail may be considered as local foods for the purposes of a bilingual labelling exemption, depending on where they are sold [B.01.012(1), FDR; 6(1), CPLR].

Where this exemption for local foods applies to gift baskets made and sold at retail, any internal prepackaged foods must be bilingually labelled as per regulatory requirements unless a bilingual labelling exemption applies to that food.

For additional information, refer to the Bilingual Labelling section of the Industry Labelling Tool.
