This email is to inform you that Health Canada will be hosting an all-day meeting with stakeholders and experts on front-of-package food (FOP) labelling on Monday, September 18th from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. In line with Health Canada’s commitment to open and transparent government, we are inviting you to attend via live streaming. There will be a limited opportunity for online participants to submit questions to contribute to the discussion.
The goal of the meeting is to bring together experts, industry and health stakeholders to share and review the evidence related to FOP labelling, including the public health context, consumer research, and international experiences.
Health Canada will have a professionally facilitated discussion about FOP symbol options at the meeting. These discussions will help inform the development of the regulatory proposal for FOP.
Please find attached the draft agenda.
