Canadian Meat Council (CMC) applauds the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) as today marks the historic coming into force date of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations.

"The meat industry is one of the most heavily regulated sector in Canada. We have a long-standing relationship with CFIA and these regulations are an essential building block of a risk-based, modern food safety system that is long overdue," says Chris White, President and CEO of CMC.

The outcome-based regulations will allow a greater degree of flexibility and innovation that could build efficiencies in the industry. CMC will continue to work with the CFIA to ensure ongoing consistent application and enforcement of the SFCR, and support the implementation at its members’ establishments.

CMC will keep working with the CFIA as a partner in providing safe, high-quality, and nutritious meat to Canadians and the rest of the world.
