Provide your input on proposed changes to Alberta’s Food Regulation to reduce red tape, increase opportunities and make it easier for home-prepared food entrepreneurs to do business in Alberta by February 2, 2020.
Alberta Agriculture is gathering feedback on proposed changes to Alberta’s Food Regulation and Food Retail and Foodservices Code that will make it easier for Albertans to make, sell and purchase low-risk, home-prepared foods.
The primary goal of the Food Regulation and Code is to protect the public from foodborne illness. The proposed changes will reduce unnecessary red tape and increase flexibility for consumers and home-prepared food entrepreneurs, while protecting public health.
Albertans, home-prepared food entrepreneurs and food industry operators can share their feedback by taking the online survey by February 2, 2020.
Your feedback will help inform potential changes to Alberta’s Food Regulation and Code, expected to be introduced in the spring of 2020.
