Do you mind paying the same price for food that has shrunk in size since you bought it last? Is it okay with your family if the list of ingredients on packaged food is not quite accurate?
A job that government does well is food inspection. The goals of food inspectors should be to ensure that:
- citizens have safe food to eat
- food safety is not compromised by the pursuit of profit
Canadians were told that the 2012 federal budget cuts to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency would not affect food inspection. However, the presence of poorly processed food and poorly packaged food means that improvements are needed somewhere.
