Templates for label designers: supplemented food facts tables, supplemented food caution identifiers and lists of cautionary statements
About food label regulations
Canada has federal regulations and requirements for food labels. Companies producing and selling food products must make sure their labels meet these requirements. The Food and Drug Regulations (FDR) requires a supplemented food facts table on all supplemented foods. A supplemented food caution identifier and list of cautionary statements may also need to appear on some supplemented foods. To know whether your supplemented food requires a supplemented food caution identifier and list of cautionary statements, please refer to the Guidance document for Supplemented foods regulations.
Templates: supplemented food facts tables, supplemented food caution identifiers and lists of cautionary statements
To help label designers and the food and packaging industry meet format specifications, we created a compendium of templates. The templates are the actual-size graphic illustrations for various supplemented food facts table formats and supplemented food caution identifier formats permitted by the FDR.
For lists of cautionary statements, there are variations that could meet the graphic specifications detailed in the FDR. Two examples have been provided within the compendium to demonstrate acceptable variations.
