Food retail in Canada - additional information

The Canadian food retail trade has been constantly growing since 2010. Food retailers include supermarkets and grocery stores, convenience stores, discounters and specialty stores. In 2015, retail store sales of food generated approximately 91.01 billion Canadian dollars. Leading Canadian food retailers include Loblaws, Sobeys and Metro.

With the decline of the Canadian dollar, the average retail price of most food categories has increased. Quality red meats such as sirloin steak and prime rib saw the greatest price inflation, while staple foods such as white sugar saw a reduction in price. In response, 40 percent of Canadian households are choosing cheaper, less healthy food options. Retail sales of candy and confectionary generated approximately 419 million Canadian dollars in December 2015, with sales forecast to reach almost 4.5 billion Canadian dollars by 2018.

Healthy food is important to Canadian consumers, a survey finding 84 percent believe food and nutrition can prevent illness. Free-from food and beverages claiming to be trans-fat free were the most purchased by consumers in 2015, with gluten-free retail sales forecast to exceed 800 million Canadian dollars by 2017.
