The food processing industry is one of the largest manufacturing industries in Canada, providing employment for 290,000 Canadians and producing shipments worth $117.8 billion in 2019. It accounts for 17% of total manufacturing shipments and 2% of the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

The food processing industry is an integral part of the Canadian food supply chain as it purchases about 40% of the Canadian agricultural production and sells over 70% of its output to Canadian retailers and foodservice providers.
