The foodservice industry has a critical role to play in building a sustainable future and contributing to a circular economy in Canada. From locally sourced ingredients, efficient recycling, elimination of problematic plastics, food waste reduction, and energy-saving upgrades, foodservice operators are embedding sustainability best practices throughout their operations.
Governments at all levels across Canada are introducing plastic packaging regulations that target many of the essential items operators use to preserve and package food. To assist restaurants in complying with bans on Single-Use Plastics (SUPs), Restaurants Canada’s created the following resources:
- Webinar: Decoding Canada’s Plastic Regulations for Foodservice Businesses
- Webinar: An Overview of the Single-use Plastics Prohibition Regulations with Environment and Climate Change Canada
- Article: The Latest on Canada’s Ban on Single-Use Plastics: Timelines and Alternatives for Restaurant Operators
- Toolkit: Decoding Canada’s Plastic Regulations for Foodservice Businesses

We will continue to update our members with offerings as we gain more insights and information regarding future regulations.
