RCC advocates for consistent regulation of supplemented foods

May 27, 2021

Retail Council of Canada and its grocery retail members met with officials from Health Canada on May 19 on proposed new regulations for supplemented foods such as vitamin-enhanced water, juices, nutritional bars, confectionery, and gum. RCC advocated for a predictable, consistent approach to regulating these products in order to help promote innovation and speed to market for this growing product category.

RCC’s comments were well received, and a formal regulatory proposal is expected from the government for consultation in June.
