Canadian Grocery Code on FPT Agenda

FBC-ABC joins agriculture and food groups from across the country in calling for a Grocery Code of Conduct.  The attached paper lays out the case for greater discipline across Canada’s food supply chain.  Did you know:

  • Just five large companies control over 80% of Canada’s grocery market.
  • Over 80% of new products introduced for retail customers were either developed or manufactured outside of Canada.
  • 79% of Canadians feel that having a small number of grocery chains competing results in grocery prices being higher than they need to be.

Thanks to the work of FBC-ABC and Canada’s agri-food community, this item has made it to the agenda of the upcoming November 2020 Federal-Provincial-Territorial Ministers’ meeting.

Join us in supporting a Canadian Grocery Code of Conduct and strengthening Canada’s food system.
