Consultations - Food Labelling Modernization Initiative

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) launched the Food Labelling Modernization (FLM) initiative in June 2013. A multi-phase consultation approach was adopted. The CFIA analyzed the feedback from these consultations, and developed key proposals for changes that were put forward for the third phase of consultation.
