Facilitated by the Consumers Council of Canada, leading Canadian consumer organizations have formed a panel to investigate and recommend what Canadian consumers need and expect today from food information, advertising and labelling in order to exercise their right to make informed choices. The Consumer Group Panel on Food Product Information, Labelling and Advertising is working to assist in identifying areas of required research, consultation and advocacy concerning food product information, labelling and advertising.
Members of the panel include three major multi-issue consumer groups, Consumers Council of Canada, Option Consommateurs and Union des Consommateurs, and three organizations with particular concerns about how people are affected by food and food information, Anaphylaxis Canada, Heart & Stroke Foundation and My Sustainable Canada.

A final report is expected by Spring 2013, with the possibility of the interim release of findings while the panel is in progress.
