Produce Industry Update, by F. Charles Waud… According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, “All the remaining SFCR requirements related to the FFV sector license holders are in force (including lot code/traceability). However, given the current COVID environment, the CFIA has prioritized its inspection activities to focus on critical food safety requirements. Guidance has been issued to the inspectorate to this effect. Lot code/traceability verification activities are subject to low inspection priority.” Good to know!
