The Packaging
Association of Canada
is using the investment to further develop the industry’s
PACsecure food safety program, which outlines food safety standards for the
packaging industry. The funding will be used to create additional on-line
training programs and materials, further develop the audit process, and conduct
recall and traceability field tests and workshops.

“The assistance we have
received from the Government of Canada has been invaluable in providing the
Canadian packaging industry with the most comprehensive food safety standards
for packaging materials,” said Larry Dworkin, director of government relations
for the packaging association. “Most importantly, our industry is embracing
these standards to ensure that it can demonstrate its due diligence in
providing the safest packaging to Canadians as well as to our customers in
other countries.”
