QUEBECERS ARE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO CUT DOWN ON GROCERY BILLS WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON A HEALTHY DIET

The impact of the pandemic and high inflation are driving several trends in the food sector:

71% of all Quebecers plan to cut down on food waste in response to higher grocery prices.

Quebecers can gravitate toward local products since over 70% of all homegrown produce is competitively priced or even cheaper than options from outside the province.

Always on the lookout for a healthier diet, consumers are becoming increasingly inquisitive and educated. They want food attributes to be clearly identified on products.

Other trends are still holding strong, including probiotics and fermented foods to promote digestive health, and alternative proteins to meat.
