“Canada’s Food Price Report 2023 predicts families will spend up to $1,065 more on food next year”, which is about a 5-7% increase from 2022. In contrast, 2022 saw the highest rate of food inflation since the 1980s - a 10.3% average rise in the cost of food. What’s more, is that 23% of Canadians report they eat less than they should, due to the unaffordability of food. It’s gotten bad enough for the creation of a new term “greedflation”, where companies take advantage of the inflation rates to profit off of customers who have limited choice of purchase. Foods that will be affected the most in 2023 include: vegetables, dairy and meat. Read more here, including a link in the article to the full report.
