2020 Food Resolutions

End-of-year survey suggests 87% of Canadians feel food prices are increasing faster than household income, and 53% intend to change food shopping habits in 2020.

As the year 2019 ends, the Agri-Food Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University is releasing results of a cross-Canada survey  on food affordability and food-related resolutions for 2020.[i] In partnership with Angus Reid, the survey explores what Canadians intend to do to offset the effects of food inflation in 2020. It also looks at how they expect to change food shopping and consumption habits in the new year.
