New Survey Reveals Strong Preference for Discounts in Grocery Shopping Habits 

HALIFAX, February 20, 2024 — Loblaw’s recent 50% discount flip-flop on expiring foods prompted many Canadians to explore in-store discounts and food-saving apps. However, the concept of food rescuing remains largely understudied. The Agri-Food Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University, in collaboration with Caddle, is releasing a new report on grocery shopping habits, focusing on in-store and app discounting, as well as food rescue initiatives. The survey aims to understand the practices Canadians value and assess their expectations.
