Average retail price for chicken in Canada from January 2015 to June 2019 (in Canadian dollars per kilogram)

by Emma Bedford, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Average retail price for chicken in Canada 2015-2019 The retail price of chicken has remained relatively constant over the past few years, staying between seven and eight dollars per kilogram. In June 2019, the average retail price was 7.52 Canadian dollars per kilogram. In 2018, the price peaked in October when it reached 7.64 Canadian dollars per kilogram.
Fluctuations in the Canadian chicken market

Despite chicken prices remaining relatively stable, household expenditure on the white meat has varied recently, with average annual spending hitting a six-year low in 2017 at 230 Canadian dollars. Regardless of a decrease in household spending, chicken production reached an all-time high in 2018, with around 1.3 million metric tons of chicken produced in Canada. However, the volume of chicken exported from Canada has not increased in line with this increase in production. This suggests that Canadians are purchasing and consuming more chicken, yet they are purchasing cheaper cuts or varieties as expenditure is declining.

Opinions on chicken consumption

Males aged over 55 are the most likely demographic to actively include chicken in their diet, whilst females aged between 18 and 34 are most likely to avoid eating chicken. Females from this age group are also most likely to see eating less meat as a protein source as a positive choice.
