Front-of-Package Nutrition Labelling – September 18 Stakeholder Engagement Meeting
In October 2016, Health Canada released the Healthy Eating Strategy which included a commitment to engage the public and stakeholders to get input on a number of interlocking initiatives to improve the food environment. One of these initiatives includes a front-of-package (FOP) labelling approach aimed at helping Canadians make healthier and more informed food choices, particularly on sugars, sodium and saturated fat. On September 18, 2017, Health Canada brought together industry and health stakeholders, as well as academic and international experts to share and review evidence and to explore options for FOP symbols for further consultation. This report summarizes the proceedings and outcomes of this FOP Stakeholder Engagement Meeting.
