Consumers Council of Canada

TORONTO, Dec. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Leading Canadian consumer organizations are calling on the federal government to reduce food fraud and help consumers make healthy food choices by improving how packaged food is labelled.

The five organizations - Anaphylaxis Canada, My Sustainable Canada, Consumers Council of Canada, Option consommateurs, Heart and Stroke Foundation, and Union des consommateurs - today released a report highlighting eight recommendations for government. The groups spent 18 months working together as part of a Consumer Council of Canada multi-stakeholder consultation.

"The message is very clear to the federal government that consumers need and want better packaged food labelling so they can more easily buy healthy foods and avoid food fraud," said Aubrey Leblanc, president of the Council.

The report is in response to the federal government's current review of food labelling legislation.
