Frozen Food Wholesaling in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Frozen Food Wholesaling in Canada

Over the five years to 2019, the Frozen Food Wholesaling industry in Canada has experienced steady performance. Performance is tied to demand for industry products alongside changes in food prices. Over the past five years, the industry has benefited from increased demand for goods, with an improving economy and rising incomes stimulating increased consumer spending. This has bolstered demand from downstream outlets. The industry is heavily fragmented, as during the reporting period, the number of nonemploying sole proprietors has remained steady. Over the past five years, strong downstream consumer demand has helped lead to increased industry participation. However, it has led to a faster rate of growth in industry employment, so despite the prevalence of small companies, the industry's average operator has grown slightly larger over time.
