"Canada Food & Drink Report Q4 2015" now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Oct 07 2015

The collapse in global oil prices will see Canada's energy-related fixed investment fall and unemployment rise, which will hurt household spending levels this year and next. Our latest oil-price revisions have prompted us to downgrade Canada's real GDP growth forecast from 2.1% to 1.5% in 2015. Canadian households will - on balance- benefit from the decline in fuel prices, adding to their disposable income and limiting the downside to private consumption growth in the next two years. However, we have lowered our 2015 real private consumption growth forecast from 2.5% to 1.8%, as business sentiment and hiring expectations have moved decidedly lower.

Headline Industry Forecasts (local currency)

2015 per capita food consumption growth = +1.5% year-on-year (y-o-y); forecast compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 2014 to 2019 = +1.5%;
2015 alcoholic drink sales growth = +3.8% y-o-y; forecast CAGR 2014 to 2019 = +4.2%;
2015 soft drink sales growth = +4.2% y-o-y; forecast CAGR 2014 to 2019 = +4.1%;
2015 mass grocery retail sales growth = +3.6% y-o-y; forecast CAGR 2014 to 2019 = +3.5%.
