Working closely with industry and government, RCC successfully negotiated to temporarily suspend certain labelling requirements for foodservice products for 90 days (until July 5, 2020), including:
- official language requirements
- format requirements (e.g. stickers are allowed)
- container sizes
This means that food that was destined for restaurants, hotels and institutions such as schools can be repurposed for sale at retail in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
