Grocery Wholesaling in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Grocery Wholesaling in Canada

The Grocery Wholesaling industry in Canada, which acts as the middleman between food producers and retailers, has seen comfortable growth in recent years due to a rise in consumers' confidence and incomes, in addition to falling fuel costs. Revenue tends to fluctuate with variable fuel costs, food product prices and consumer spending. However, these conditions have all been favourable over the past five years. Over the five years to 2022, demand for specialized goods will lead smaller companies to carve out niche markets, supplying locally produced foods, ethnic foods and specialty imported foods. Still, companies that cannot find a way to adapt to the increasing competition will have trouble beating out the big players. As a whole, the industry will experience a slowdown of demand for wholesaling services as the trend of wholesale bypass, where retailers buy goods directly from producers to cut costs, sets in.

Industry operators are intermediaries in merchandise distribution and do little to transform products. Wholesalers sell and distribute all general-line grocery products. Establishments do not specialize. Distributed products usually include dry groceries, perishable food and nonfood products found in grocery stores.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
