Canada’s Food Manufacturing Industry: Industrial Outlook Winter 2015
This report examines the short-and medium-term economic and profitability outlook for Canada’s Food Manufacturing Industry.
- Export Conditions—The combination of a stronger U.S. economy and a weaker Canadian dollar creates desirable conditions for Canadian exporters of food products.
- Trade Agreements—The Canada–Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA), newly in force, will expand opportunities for Canadian food manufacturers by levelling the playing field with foreign competitors.
- Canadian Economy—The Canadian economy is slowing and the labour market has been soft for months. Domestic demand will be the weak spot for food manufacturers this year.
