Canadians' appetite for ice cream has been melting away, as evidenced by weakening consumption and falling revenue. Over the next five years, consumers are projected to up their total spending on health-related costs. Many Canadians will satisfy their sweet tooth by savouring the lower-fat, lower-calorie traditional ice cream varieties; consequently, industry revenue is expected to increase over the five years to 2021.
