September 13, 2012
This report examines the short-and medium-term economic and profitability outlook for Canada’s Food Manufacturing Industry.
- Commodity Prices—Hot, dry weather has hurt crops and pushed up raw
commodity prices, resulting in higher costs for the industry.
- Consumer Confidence—Weak consumer confidence and the disappointing
job market will detract from consumer willingness to spend on food.
- Speciality Products—Speciality products, such as natural and organic
products, generate high profit margins for food manufacturers.
