Update from Food & Beverage Canada
April 12, 2021

FBC-ABC is pleased to share its National Workforce and Recovery Action Plan released today. The Action Plan targets three key priorities for Canada’s food and beverage manufacturing sector: Skilled Trades, Foreign Labour and Innovation.

"We are calling on the federal government to implement policies necessary to strengthen innovation and incentivize investment in Canada's food and beverage manufacturing sector," said Rosemary MacLellan, VP, Strategy & Industry Relations, Gay Lea Foods and FBC-ABC Policy Committee Chair. "Measures to combat labour shortages and skills gaps are needed now to ensure the stability of the sector, while we also focus on growing and innovating to meet Canada's future food needs."

"Our sector is the largest manufacturing employer in Canada, with almost 300,000 workers, and we estimate we are short 10 percent of our required workforce. By 2025 that number is expected to double," said Michael Burrows, CEO Maple Lodge Farms and Co-Chair FBC-ABC. "We are regularly hearing from companies that they have challenges finding workers with the appropriate skills to meet our industries evolving needs, even as we lag behind other industries and other countries in investment in innovative processes and technologies. It's time to address these serious challenges and protect our food manufacturing capabilities."

3 Emerging Themes for Grocery, Manufacturers and Restaurants 

People’s food habits tended to evolve gradually. And then the pandemic hit. Shopping habits shattered, restaurants retracted, and the way we connected to food was upended.

Three important themes emerge from our recent research on people and food. They suggest abundant opportunities for grocery, manufacturers, and restaurants:

1. The transformation of our relationship with food blows open the door to grab market share through innovation

2. There is a segment we identified that are perfect targets for testing new ideas

3. Reimagining the restaurant means upping the allure and fun

Each of these themes are ripe for exploration. In this whitepaper, dig in to each and touch on ideas for how your organization can harness these insights by better understanding how people feel, behave, and think.

New Studies to examine COVID's impact on food industry workers 
Research funded by the federal government through its COVID-19 Immunity Task Force will provide a clearer picture of how the virus is transmitted among workers in the food business 

Ottawa is providing $4.5 million to fund two new studies into how food service workers—including those in grocery retail—have been affected by COVID-19.

The research is being done through the COVID-19 Immunity Task Force (CITF), which the Government of Canada launched last April to study immunity from the novel coronavirus that causes COVID.

For one study, researchers from Universitè Laval will follow 450 people working in grocery, restaurants and bars in Quebec to see how many have antibodies to the coronavirus, suggesting a previous infection regardless of symptoms.

Additional tests will be done after three and six months. Those findings will be compared to 150 people working in hardware stores for comparison purposes.

Throughout the pandemic, the grocery sector and most food production businesses have remained up and running in some fashion. There have been frequent stories of workers in those settings contracting COVID and the new research should provide a clearer picture of just how manyRead more here

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New website promotes Canadian seafood

Canada is world-renowned for producing some of the most exceptional seafood in the world. The taste

and quality of Canadian seafood is unlike anywhere else in the world.

That is why Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, have

launched a new website, Seafood from Canada, to promote the region’s seafood to international

export markets.

Canadian seafood harvesters, farmers, and processors work tirelessly to provide high quality,

sustainable seafood from the cold North Atlantic Ocean. An impressive bounty of products including

lobster, snow crab, coldwater shrimp, farmed Atlantic salmon, scallops, halibut, herring, Atlantic cod,

blue mussels, oysters, and redfish are enjoyed in more than 130 countries.

The new Seafood from Canada website will help connect Canadian seafood suppliers with buyers in key

export markets worldwide. This initiative was made possible with funding from the Government of

Canada and the four Atlantic Provinces.

Website features

  • Company directory with more than 300 Canadian seafood exporters, allowing buyers and distributors to connect directly with exporters.
  • Information on key seafood species and product forms available for export, including lobster, snow crab, oysters, blue mussels, coldwater shrimp, tuna, Atlantic cod, redfish, and more.
  • Calendar of events identifying international export activities to connect buyers with Canadian seafood exporters.

Identifying and Enforcing Trade Secrets in the Food & Beverage Industry

By Donald Bocchinfuso and Noel Courage

Trade secrets provide a business with an opportunity to obtain a commercial advantage over competitors who do not know or use the secret. Trade secrets do not have to be significant innovations, just new and unknown, with at least a minimal degree of skill applied by the secret owner to obtain it. Many food and beverage businesses do not realize that even a simple new manufacturing process or formulation could give rise to a protectable trade secret. However, the secret must be managed carefully to initially qualify as a trade secret, and then to avoid loss of rights. This article will provide a brief overview of trade secret protection, as well as show how they can be used to protect against misappropriation by former business collaborators, as well as departing employees and their new employers.

Trade Secrets for Food and Beverage Products

Creation and protection of trade secrets is especially important for food and beverage products, where processes and recipes may not be suitable for patenting.1 We emphasize that simplicity is not a bar to trade secret protection.

As an example, the specific proportion of clam juice, seasonings and tomato juice used in Clamato™ beverage was a protectable trade secret.2 This was the case even though the label listed all the basic ingredients (though “spices” listed on the label were not specified). As well, the Clamato brand owners weren’t the first to mix tomato juice and clam broth with spices. This had been disclosed in a cookbook at least 10 years before Mott’s first sold Clamato beverage in 1966. Since it was a trade secret, the owner was able to prevent its misuse by a former business partner.

PRANA: Strong trademarks help make "snacktivism" possible

As Canadians grow increasingly mindful of nutrition, as well as the way their food is produced and packaged, businesses are seizing opportunities in the field. At the forefront of the organic snacks industry is PRANA, a Montréal-based Canadian company selling organic vegan snacks.

The founders of PRANA, Alon Farber and Marie-Josée Richer.

The founders of PRANA, Alon Farber and Marie-Josée Richer, got the inspiration for the company's name while travelling in India in the early 2000s. PRANA means "vital energy" in Sanskrit. Farber and Richer thought this was the perfect name to represent their company, which prides itself on the sustainability and wholesomeness of its products.

Relevant changes related to exemption form complying with the Mexican labelling standard

As of  1 October 2020, the Mexican Ministry of Economy is no longer allowing the use of “exemption letters” to request that food products imported in bulk or for processing, wholesale or foodservice purposes (i.e. not for retail sale) be exempted from compliance with Mexican Official Standard NOM-051, which is related to labelling of pre-packaged foods and non-alcoholic beverages for retail sale.

This change, which caught the Mexican industry by surprise, stems from modifications published by the Mexican Ministry of Economy to its General Rules and Criteria for Foreign Trade Operations. As part of the changes, the Ministry of Economy removed the provision that allowed Mexican companies importing food products in bulk or for processing/foodservice/wholesale purposes to present a letter under oath requesting that the products be exempted from compliance with the Mexican Official Standard NOM-051, since the products are not intended for retail sale directly to consumers.  We understand that this change was implemented following what was considered as abuses in the use of these exemption letters when importing products that were not complying with NOM-051, but were in reality being sold at retail once imported.

While the use of “exemption letters” is no longer permitted, the Ministry of Economy indicated to the Mexican industry that there are some “Exemptions of Compliance with NOM-051” that Mexican customs brokers can still use when conducting the import process for products imported in bulk or for processing/foodservice/wholesale purposes (not for direct retail sale). The Ministry of Economy explained to the Mexican industry that in order to make use of these compliance exemptions, when filling out the official document to be presented at Mexican customs for importing a shipment (called PEDIMENTO in Spanish), the customs broker needs to include the corresponding “Code” in the PEDIMENTO, to indicate that the product should be exempted from complying with NOM-051 because it is not intended for direct retail sale. Mexican importers have indicated to the Embassy that they have already started to use this provision, and are also attaching a letter to the PEDIMENTO, justifying why the product does not need to comply with NOM-051 (i.e. imported in bulk for processing or for foodservice purposes).

Industry contacts also indicated to the Embassy that another option they are using is to request from a private verification unit authorized to verify compliance of NOM-051, to issue a “Certificate of Non-Application of NOM-051” (CONSTANCIA DE NO APLICACION DE LA NOM-051) for the products, which is then attached to the PEDIMENTO. Mexican industry contacts recommended that companies should evaluate what is the best option on a case by case basis. Industry contacts also indicated that when required, Mexican authorities are providing the option of re-labelling products in a fiscal warehouse at the point of entry or in warehouses inside Mexico, under the supervision of the authority or an authorized private verification unit

When shipping products in bulk or for processing, wholesale or foodservice purposes, the Embassy recommends that Canadian exporters work closely with their Mexican importers to define the best available strategy to demonstrate to Mexican authorities that the product is not required to comply with NOM-051 as it is not intended for retail sale directly to consumers.

Prime Minister announces more support for workers and business
through Canada's COVID-19 Economic Response Plan

The Government of Canada is taking strong and quick action to protect our economy, and the health, safety, and jobs of all Canadians during the global COVID-19 outbreak.

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today announced a new set of economic measures to help stabilize the economy and help Canadians affected by the impacts of this challenging period.

These measures, delivered as part of the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan, will provide up to $27 billion in direct support to Canadian workers and businesses, plus $55 billion to meet liquidity needs of Canadian businesses and households through tax deferrals to help stabilize the economy. Combined, this $82 billion in support represents more than 3 per cent of Canada’s GDP. This wide-ranging support will help ensure Canadians can pay for rent and groceries, and help businesses continue to pay their employees and their bills during this time of uncertainty.

This plan builds on coordinated action taken since the beginning of this outbreak, including the more than $1 billion COVID-19 Response Fund, which provided funding to provinces and territories to strengthen critical health care systems. It represents over $500 billion in credit and liquidity support for people and businesses through cooperation between financial Crown corporations, the Bank of Canada, the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), and commercial lenders to ensure businesses can continue to operate.

Federal Work-Sharing Program

If your workplace is feeling the impacts of COVID-19 due to a reduction of business, consider applying for the federal government’s Work-Sharing program. The Work-Sharing program aims to help employers avoid layoffs and provide employees with income support during times of temporary reduction in normal business activity that is outside of an employer’s control.

Work-Sharing is available to employees eligible for Employment Insurance benefits and requires that employees agree to a reduced schedule of work. Employers and employees must apply for the program together, with union involvement as well if applicable. Applications must be submitted at least 30 days in advance and benefits will generally be available for up to 38 weeks. However, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the federal government has implemented special measures to address employers experiencing a downturn in normal business related to the outbreak. The changes include waiving the mandatory waiting period between Work-Sharing agreements and extending the number of weeks that benefits may be received from 38 to 76. These special measures are effective March 15, 2020 to March 14, 2021.

What is a Work-Sharing Unit?

A Work-Sharing unit includes a minimum of two employees who perform similar work and agree to reduce their hours by the same percentage, over a specific period of time. A unit must reduce its hours by 10%-60%. All employees in the same job description must reduce their hours of work, regardless of whether they are part of the Work-Sharing unit (i.e. one employee cannot refuse to join the unit and continue to work normal hours).

Who is Eligible?

Employers must be involved in a year-round business in Canada for at least two years in order to be eligible for the program. This includes private businesses, publicly held companies, or not-for-profit organizations. A business must be experiencing a recent decline in sales or production levels of at least 10% in the last six months to be eligible for a Work-Sharing agreement. An employer must be able to demonstrate that the recent decline is directly or indirectly related to impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak and that the work shortage is temporary and beyond the employer’s control. In order to be eligible, the decline cannot be due to a recurring slow-down. Finally, employers must be willing to submit a recovery plan outlining measures that will be implemented to support the on-going operation of the business.

In order to be eligible for the Work-Sharing program employees must be eligible to receive Employment Insurance benefits. Employees involved in the program must be year-round, permanent employees, and may be full or part-time as long as they perform the main functions of the business. Those employees eligible for the program are those which comprise the employer’s “core staff”. Finally, employees in a work sharing unit are employees who agree to reduce their normal working hours and share the work that is available at the workplace.
