Supermarkets and Grocery Stores in Canada - Statistics & Facts
The food and beverage industry, which includes both food retail and processing sectors, is one of the largest and most competitive trades in Canada. For several years, the food retail sector has been dominated by larger supermarket and grocery chains. The top three players accounted for more than 60 percent of the supermarket and grocery store market share in 2015.
With the cost of food on the rise, price was the number one priority for consumers shopping at multiple stores in Canada. In contrast, location was the leading reason for choosing a specific store. Meanwhile, food retail could potentially be transformed by online grocery shopping, given the increasing popularity of e-commerce in Canada. A survey found that groceries which are delivered to home was the preferred option for online grocery shopping, with Millennials aged 18 to 34 years most likely to use a mobile app for grocery shopping.
