Overview

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

Low-risk foods don't require temperature control and have a low risk of foodborne illness. Some examples include baked goods, jams/jellies, candies, pickled foods and cereals.

Protecting the public from foodborne illness is the primary goal of the food regulation and code. The changes will reduce unnecessary red tape and increase flexibility for consumers and home-prepared food entrepreneurs, while protecting public health.
