The Canada Organic Trade Association sent a letter to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) which highlights their main concerns with the new regulations, and offers suggestions on how the CFIA can improve and/or clarify issues with the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations.

The CFIA has already heard from various industry stakeholders, but it is critical that they also hear from a wide range of association members as well. All Organic Alberta members are strongly encouraged to send a letter to the CFIA, and we invite you to borrow language from this template to assist you. The sooner and the more frequently we communicate our concerns to the CFIA as a community, the higher the probability that our concerns will be addressed.

Thanks in advance for taking action!
