Earlier this week, Canada rolled out sweeping new food regulations, adopted under a law dubbed the Safe Food for Canadians Act (SFCA). The regulations will be phased in over a period of several years.
That harmonizing and streamlining of laws and regulations will be good for Canadian food businesses and for importers, including those in the U.S., says one food law expert. But some small farmers and food producers worry SFCA is just another tangle of red tape, writes Baylen Linnekin, and they’re concerned about the law’s impact on their bottom line.
