Health Canada seeks input from the Food Service Sector on sodium in foods

As part of Health Canada’s Healthy Eating Strategy, one area of focus is sodium reduction in prepared foods sold in Canada through foodservice outlets (for example restaurants and caterers), including home meal replacements sold through retailers.

Health Canada is seeking information from the foodservices sector (for example restaurants, caterers, institutions, suppliers, distributors and retailers selling home meal replacements) to better understand current factors influencing sodium levels in food served in foodservice outlets.
Health Canada will be using this information to develop a sodium reduction strategy specific to this sector in the near future. This call for information is a great opportunity for stakeholders to provide input to help inform these new initiatives as they move forward.
Stakeholders are invited to provide input on their sodium reduction experience in the foodservices sector. The call for information is open until November 20, 2017.
