Traceability for food

Although the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) came into force on January 15, 2019, certain requirements may apply in 2020 and 2021 based on food commodity, type of activity and business size. For more information, refer to the SFCR timelines.

The Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) require that certain food businesses track the movement of their food in the supply chain – forward to the immediate customer and back to the immediate supplier. These requirements apply to a broad scope of food businesses.
