New Rules for Selling Home-prepared Foods

Do you enjoy selling or buying homemade goodies? We’re looking for input on proposed regulatory changes that would make it easier for Albertans to make, sell and buy low-risk, home-cooked foods.

We’re gathering feedback on proposed changes to Alberta’s Food Regulation and Food Retail and Foodservices Code that will make it easier for Albertans to make, sell and purchase low-risk, home-prepared foods.

The primary goal of the Food Regulation and Code is to protect the public from foodborne illness. The proposed changes will reduce unnecessary red tape and increase flexibility for consumers and home-prepared food entrepreneurs, while protecting public health.

Get involved

Albertans, home-prepared food entrepreneurs and food industry operators can share their feedback by taking the online survey by February 2, 2020.
