19.3.13 FOOD LABELLING

WHEREAS The labels on many of our food products say “Imported for a company in Canada”, this does not tell us where the product actually comes from;

WHEREAS We believe that, as citizens of Canada, we have a right to know the source of our food;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED That the National Pensioners’ Federation urges the Federal Government to ensure our foods are clearly marked with the country of origin, e.g. “Product of Japan, Packaged for a company in Canada”.
