A federal review is underway to help Canada phase out disposable bags from its food packaging and prevent a rise in obesity and disease, with a focus on the use of plastic bags.

The review by the Canada Food Inspection Agency is being led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of Canada, and includes a report that suggests the replacement of plastic containers with a plastic-free packaging system could have a cost savings of $15-billion annually.

In recent years, Canada has taken steps to phase out the use, or recycling, of disposable bags in grocery stores and restaurants, a move that has been welcomed by the food industry, but has been opposed by many Canadians, who say it makes it harder to clean up after the food is handled.

It’s been more than a decade since the Canadian Food Inspection Authority issued a report finding that Canadians were consuming more than three times the recommended daily consumption of plastic-containing products, according to a CBC News analysis of data from the agency.

With a new report on food packaging, the agency’s review has been expanded to include a broader look at the plastic-related impacts of packaging.

A report published in the Canadian Journal of Food Science and Technology suggests that the average Canadian consumes approximately 2.7 tonnes of plastic per year, according a CBC report.

According to the report, one in four Canadians consumes plastic in their homes and a quarter of the country’s plastic-plastic-based packaging is used.

The agency’s report also noted that one in three Canadian households do not recycle their plastic-trash containers.

As part of the federal review, the government has committed to developing a plan for Canada to phase-out the use and recycling of plastic in food and beverage packaging.

The new report says the government’s plan should include a timeline for implementation of a replacement plan, which should include public health and social impact assessments.

For example, it’s recommended that a plan be developed to determine whether there are other benefits and risks to the environment that outweigh the benefits of replacing disposable bags.

The government is also looking at a plan to implement a national plastic bag ban for grocery stores, with an aim to phase it in by 2020.

Canada’s Food Inspection Service is also working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to ensure that all plastic packaging is made of a biodegradable material.

The plan is expected to include requirements to label plastic bags as biodegradeable, as well as to include plastic containers that can be easily recycled.

Meanwhile, in the United States, President Donald Trump has announced a $5.4-billion initiative to eliminate plastic bags by 2020, but the plan is not expected to be enacted until at least 2021.
