Amendments to the Meat Inspection Regulation will cut red tape and provide Albertans with greater access to locally produced meat while maintaining food safety.
These changes give operators more flexibility to meet legislated requirements and increase consumer access to high-quality local products.
“Alberta produces the world’s best beef, pork and poultry products, and Albertans want better access to these products,” said Devin Dreeshen, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry today.
“These common-sense changes will also provide new economic opportunities for Alberta ranchers and provincial abattoirs. Albertans value knowing where their food comes from and are proud to support local farm families.”
These amendments modernize Alberta’s Meat Inspection Regulations and align us with our partners in other provinces.
