Registered Food Commodity
Registered foods cover all foods including fish, dairy, meat, seafood and others.
The process for obtaining a License under the new Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) will be applicable to anyone who will be conducting an “activity”, which includes, but not limited to:
- Manufacturing, processing, treating, preserving, grading, packaging, or labelling a food that will be exported or moved between provinces
- Importing a food
- Exporting a food that requires an export certificate
- Slaughtering a food animal
- Storing and handling a meat product in its imported condition for inspection by the CFI
The process to obtain a license will be governed and issued by the CFIA. However, once you are licensed, you must have the effective preventative controls in place.
