Food Shopping Behavior in Canada - Statistics & Facts
Despite the recent downturn in the Canadian dollar, food retail remains one of the largest and most competitive industries in Canada, with food retail sales accounting for more than 90 billion Canadian dollars in 2015. However, as a consequence of the fallen loonie and the large quantities of fresh food imports, food prices in Canada have risen. Consumers have therefore found it more challenging to pay their grocery bills, a 2016 survey finding 37 percent of households claimed it was somewhat difficult to afford food prices in Canada.
