Canada Gets Serious About Prosecuting Food Fraud

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), which is tasked with enforcing counterfeit food laws, has not historically punished violators to the full extent of its powers, instead frequently choosing to work alongside Canadian food businesses to help them get back into compliance. But, a recent high-profile prosecution involving food fraud has demonstrated that this permissive and reconciliatory approach to regulatory breaches may have come to an end.

What Food and Fashion Have in Common

I recently read that food is the new fashion -- if that's the case, it's a great time to be in the food biz.

Canadians are caring more and more about what we put in our bodies; I work with food and beverage companies to make sure it's their products that are being put into those bodies.
