The Fruit and Vegetable Wholesaling industry in Canada experienced moderate revenue growth over the five years to 2017, primarily as a result of increasing food prices over the five years to 2017. With increasing fruit and vegetable prices, industry operators are taking in more revenue, but also increasing their purchase costs. Moreover, despite declining per capita consumption of fruits and vegetables, downstream demand from supermarkets and grocery stores, restaurants, hotels and motels and specialty food stores have all increased, driving industry revenue growth. Over the five years to 2022, IBISWorld expects revenue to increase in response to better economic conditions, healthy eating trends and rising food prices.
