Alberta food label introduced


Made in Alberta by Albertans.

So say the food labels the province unveiled this week.

It was developed after consulting with farmers, processors and consumers this summer before finalizing the rules for its use on different types of products, the government said in a news release.

The initiative by the provincial government will help shoppers at farmers’ markets and grocery stores identify where the food comes from.

“Alberta is known as a place that produces safe, high-quality food. These days, people want to know where their food comes from, and this will make it a lot easier for them to choose food from Alberta,” said Devin Dreeshen, Alberta’s minister of agriculture and Forestry.
