ICYMI: Some of the biggest food news stories of 2019 – Eat North

Restaurant News

The past year in food news saw a number of interesting headlines from across the country. Arguably, the two biggest stories of the year came in January, when Canada introduced its new Food Guide and Second Harvest released a Food Waste Report. 

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) new initiatives to increase food safety routinely made the news in 2019. Among the many investigations and recalls that took place this year, the most significant recall occurred in December, when the CFIA terminated the license of Canada’s biggest kosher meat plant, Ryding-Regency. 

The year also saw a number of new restaurants launched from coast to coast. Air Canada’s enRoute magazine ranked the country’s best new restaurants, while more centralized reviews from Eat North co-founder Dan Clapson and Vancouver Sun writer Mia Stainsby highlighted the best new restaurants in the Prairies and Vancouver, respectively. 

Here are six stories that dominated headlines in 2019.
