Frozen Food Wholesaling in Canada
Over the five years to 2017, the Frozen Food Wholesaling industry has performed well, with industry revenue growing. Industry growth has primarily been driven by price appreciation of food and increased demand from downstream outlets, such as food-service providers and drinking establishments, and from supermarkets and grocery stores. Despite the threats of consolidation, vertical integration and wholesale bypass (the process by which retailers source orders directly from manufacturers, effectively cutting out the middle-man) rising profitability has prompted new entry into the industry. Over the five years to 2022, the Frozen Food Wholesaling industry is expected to continue growing, though at a slower pace than over the five years to 2017
