Canadian consumers have embraced natural and organic foods, and that market has enjoyed consistently strong growth in the past five years.
In our new report, Natural and Organic Foods and Beverages in Canada, Packaged Facts examines the sales and demographic trends that have influenced – and will continue to affect – growth in this segment. One of these trends is the popularity of natural foods among Canadian consumers. Unlike in the U.S., where organic foods have the lion’s share of sales, in Canada natural foods take a majority slice. The natural category finally managed to surpass the organic category in 2013, comprising just over 50% of all natural and organic food and beverage sales on the strength of a typically lower price point coupled with higher Canadian consumer confidence in “natural” claims over products certified as organic.
While market growth was slightly lower at 8.7% in 2014 due to a slightly cooler Canadian economy, Packaged Facts forecasts a CAGR of over 11% between 2014 and 2019 for natural and organic food and beverage sales in Canada, with millennials and South Asian and Chinese ethic groups helping to spur growth. Product segments that will grow faster than the overall market include organic baby foods and fair trade organic coffee, as well as meats with natural and Certified Humane labels. Non-GMO labeling for both natural and organic products will also be a strong marketing tool over the forecast period.
