This report examines the short-and medium-term economic and profitability outlook for Canada’s Food Manufacturing Industry.

Document Highlights

  • A Weak Dollar—A weak Canadian dollar will continue to support the competitiveness of Canadian food products, both at home and abroad.
  • Domestic Economy—Soft employment growth is expected to dampen disposable income growth over the near term. This could translate into weaker domestic demand for various processed foods.
  • Commodity Prices—Lower prices for agricultural commodities, such as grain and oilseed products, that account for a substantial share of the industry’s production costs will limit material cost increases.
