Seasoning, Sauce and Condiment Production in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Seasoning, Sauce and Condiment Production in Canada

The Seasoning, Sauce and Condiment Production industry in Canada experienced growth over the five years to 2018, despite mixed demand from grocery stores and food service providers for industry products. Rising per capita disposable income permitted consumers to trade up to premium and more expensive brands, while increasing health-consciousness curbed demand for most industry products high in sodium and calories. Industry participants introduced a variety of new products during this period to drive demand for their brands. Manufacturers focused on providing lighter, healthier brand extensions and new flavours in response to changing consumer needs. Over the five years to 2023, producers are anticipated to benefit from shifting consumer trends. As more consumers regularly purchase organic food, industry revenue is expected to expand due to the premium price of organic food compared with processed food.

This industry manufactures products such as mayonnaise, dressings, spices, extracts and dry food mixes from a variety of ingredients. Industry products are then sold to downstream wholesalers, food manufacturers and retail markets. Ketchup and other tomato-based sauces are excluded, as they are part of the Canned Fruit and Vegetable Processing industry in Canada (see IBISWorld report 31142CA).

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.
