Canada will firmly oppose US proposals to renew mandatory country of origin labelling for pork and beef and is concerned by measures that could cause disruptions to North American livestock supply chains, Reuters reported, citing two Canadian ministers on Tuesday.

The statement by Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau and International Trade Minister Mary Ng came in response to a proposed US rule requiring meat, poultry or eggs labelled as a US product to be raised and slaughtered within the country.
