Canadian Integrated Food Safety Initiative
The Canadian Integrated Food Safety Initiative (CIFSI) has been designed to integrate a complementary and mutually reinforcing set of programs. This integrated delivery by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada will seek to enable industry to manage risk proactively, and effectively respond to demands from governments and buyers for demonstrable assurances on food safety and biosecurity risks.
The overall program goals are to:
- Assist the sector to respond to growing consumer demands for improved food safety assurance on-farm; and
- Equip the sector to manage risk proactively.
The Canadian Integrated Food Safety Initiative has two components that are delivered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada:
Food Safety Systems Development which focuses on the development of food safety systems by national organizations; and
Canadian Industry Traceability Infrastructure which focuses on the development and implementation of traceability processes and systems by national organizations.
Growing Forward, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative.
