— Ottawa, ON
The produce sector has been selected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to participate in the initial launch of a new client service to assist industry in accessing expertise on regulatory requirements called “Ask CFIA”. Our sector is one of five selected to take part in this launch. During this initial launch period, industry is encouraged to use this opportunity to determine the efficacy of the service including use for questions related to labelling, plant health, etc. With the launch of the new Safe Food for Canadians Regulations expected in the coming months, this new service is poised to support implementation by providing a source for expert input. Since this initial launch will function as a pilot of the service, please share with us your experience and feedback using this new service.
Two documents are available to guide your use of “Ask CFIA”:
‘Ask CFIA’ – Industry access to answers
‘Ask CFIA’ – Industry User Experience
