Canned Foods are a type of food item that has been processed and sealed in an airtight container for preservation to extend the shelf life of the product.

In the region of Canada, as the consumption of such foods is increasing the demand is also growing which will play a role in boosting the market growth of canned foods. Further, investments coupled with new product launches by some key players will also boost the market growth in the coming years.

Further, shifting demographics in the country, precipitated by aging baby boomers, the growing purchasing power of the general population, especially, the millennials, and increased ethnic diversity, have been contributing to changing food preferences. These factors have been influencing trends toward food products with enhanced nutrition, ethical food choices, environmentally sustainable diets, as well as new taste profiles and flavor combinations. According to AAFC (Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada), consumers are starting to prefer foods that are quick to cook or ready for immediate consumption, which is expected to boost the canned foods market in the country. There is also an increased desire for information about food, including the production practices used as well as the nutritious contents in the food. Apart from the nutritional composition, consumers want to know how foods will enhance their performance or improve their health. Thus, this growing health awareness among consumers is expected to drive the market further.

Further, the rapidly rising disposable income in the country is another factor that is expected to drive the market substantially.

According to statistics by the Canadian Government, the total disposable income of households in the country went up from CAD 1.39 million in 2020 to CAD 1.43 million in 2021. Thus, this constantly increasing spending power of the general population is expected to drive the market further as a larger amount of people would be able to spend money on canned foods as a part of their diet.
