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 US FDA has finalized a
new food safety rule
under the landmark, bipartisan FDA Food Safety
Modernization Act (FSMA) that will help to prevent
wide-scale public health harm by requiring companies
in the United States and abroad to take steps to
prevent intentional adulteration of the food supply.
While such acts are unlikely to occur, the new rule
advances mitigation strategies to further protect
the food supply. Under the new rule, both domestic
and foreign food facilities, for the first time, are
required to complete and maintain a written food
defense plan that assesses their potential
vulnerabilities to deliberate contamination where
the intent is to cause wide-scale public health
harm. Facilities now have to identify and implement
mitigation strategies to address these
vulnerabilities, establish food defense monitoring
procedures and corrective actions, verify that the
system is working, ensure that personnel assigned to
the vulnerable areas receive appropriate training
and maintain certain records.
Please be advised
that our association does not offer employment
services for foreign workers. Should you receive an
email purporting to be from our organization
offering work permits, visas, etc, it is not
