ARCHIVED - Consultation on setting sodium reduction targets (February 2010)
Notice: The online consultation is now closed. The content found on this page is a snapshot of the consultation as it was presented to the public.
Health Canada is chairing a Multi-stakeholder Working Group on Dietary Sodium Reduction (Sodium Working Group) tasked with developing and overseeing the implementation of a strategy that will lower the sodium content of the diets of Canadians to within the range recommended by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies (Dietary Reference Intakes report for sodium). The strategy will be multi-staged and based on a three-pronged approach that will include education, voluntary reduction of sodium levels in processed food products and foods sold in food service establishments, and research.
In response to industry meetings, the following feedback questionnaire was developed to assist industry in providing Health Canada with information required to proceed with the development of sodium targets for the first set of food categories.
Please respond to the following questions as soon as possible so that we have data that is as comprehensive as possible in order to finalize the proposed targets for Group I and develop plans for next steps in the target setting process.
