Food Processing Industry Roundtable

The food processing industry is one of the largest manufacturing industries in Canada, providing employment for over a quarter of a million Canadians and producing shipments worth $114.9 billion in 2018. It accounts for 17% of total manufacturing shipments and 1.7% 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.
