Canadian food labels must be accurate, truthful and not misleading, and all mandatory label information must be presented in both English and French.
Pre-packaged foods and some non-prepackaged foods require a label, under the Food and Drugs Act and Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act, in order to be sold in Canada. All information on a food label must be accurate, truthful and not misleading, and must contain at minimum, the core labelling requirements. These core labelling requirements include the common name of the food, a net quantity declaration, the identity and principal place of business, country of origin, date markings such as a “best before”, “packaged on” or “expiration” date, storage instructions, a list of ingredients and allergen labelling, and nutrition labelling including a Nutrition Facts table (NFt) when required. In addition, there are bilingual requirements for Canadian food labels which require all mandatory information be in both English and French.
