#SMEPME Twitter Chat — Calling all SMEs in the food sector! How would new proposed requirements impact you?

Canada Business Network (CBN) is hosting a Twitter chat with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) on new proposed food safety requirements and the impact on small and medium businesses.

The CBN provides Canadian entrepreneurs with the resources they need to grow and prosper, including a wide range of information on federal and provincial/territorial government services, programs and regulations.

Recognizing the food safety challenges SMEs may face, the CBN will be hosting a bilingual Twitter chat with the CFIA as its guest. On April 11, 2017 at noon EDT, our guest will answer your questions about the proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations.

This is a great opportunity to get informed and ask questions so you can provide feedback before the CFIA's public consultation closes on April 21, 2017. Topics will include licensing, Preventive Control Plans, traceability and support available to your small business.

The proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations focus on prevention to help food businesses uphold their reputation, keep customers healthy and loyal, and avoid costly recalls. Learn more at inspection.gc.ca/safefood.

Join the live discussion by using and following the hashtag #SMEPME.
