The Canadian butter market

The volume of butter produced in Canada amounted to around 108.77 million kilograms in 2017, an increase of over 30 million kilograms over the previous ten years. Canada is also active in the international trade of butter, importing around 16 million kilograms in that year. The volume of butter exported is, however, much lower. In 2017, just 1.18 million kilograms were exported around the world from Canada. When it comes to retail sales, branded products have a clear dominance within the butter market: since 2011, just one fifth of butter and margarine retail sales were private label products.
