Statement: Removing Regulations Restricting Container Sizes

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/20/12 -- "The Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) first priority is food safety which is why they are transitioning out of non-food safety regulations such as this."

"These changes will give consumers more options at the grocery store and give industry more packaging choices.

"Our Government is conducting a full and transparent consultation, including examining economic impacts as required when changing regulations through the Canada Gazette process.

"As was reiterated to industry groups during our most recent consultation last week, there will be a multi-year transition period to ensure a smooth transition for Canadian processors and packagers.

"We'll continue to work with industry to bring forward these changes in a way that works best case by case." - Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz
