Provincial Restrictions Lifted

Quebec made changes in December to its Food Products Act, removing barriers to the production and sale of vegetable oil-based dairy products, according to The Leader-Post. The restriction lift, following a ruling that such barriers violated internal trade laws, now allows edible oil products to be freely sold in Quebec. “This is a welcome and overdue development for our producers,” said Saskatchewan’s Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart in a news release. “They now have more market access opportunities for the many products that use Saskatchewan edible oil ingredients, such as certain margarines, coffee whiteners and dessert toppings.”
