(Jan. 13/15) Restaurants Canada met with the Ministry of Health to discuss Ontario’s calorie posting legislation. We raised a number of issues that may be problematic. We also asked Assistant Deputy Health Minister Martha Greenberg to:
- consult with the industry on every step of the rule-setting process;
- allow restaurants to get pre-approval of calorie posting design from the Ministry if desired; and
- provide enough lead-time for businesses to meet the calorie posting requirements.
