Average retail price for butter in Canada 2015-2022
The Canadian butter market
The volume of butter produced in Canada amounted to around 118.24 million kilograms in 2020, an increase of over 30 million kilograms over the previous ten years. Canada is also active in the international trade of butter, importing around 23 million kilograms in 2021. The volume of butter exported is, however, much lower. In that year, just about one 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.
