CFEA is a voluntary non-profit industry association
founded in September 1996 by a group of fourteen companies who felt the need
for a resource focused on the enhancement of export efforts in the food and
beverage industry, particularly (but not exclusively) on the part of small
to medium-sized enterprises (SME's). The mission of the organization is to:
Increase the profitable export sales of food,
beverage and ingredient products.
Increase the number of small to medium-sized
food, beverage and ingredient processors and manufacturers exporting.
Raise the international profile of Canadian
food, beverage and ingredient products.
The CFEA takes pride in offering programs and
services that contributes to the success of our members and clients export
initiatives. The CFEA makes every effort to ensure our members and clients
participate only in programs in markets that hold potential for them. If you

us for guidance. Your success is important to us!

The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration is issuing a proposed rule to amend
and update its regulation on registration of food
facilities. The proposed rule would provide for
improvements to the food facility registration
system, and would also implement certain provisions
of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA),
which adds new provisions to the requirements for
food facility registration.
