Food Price Data Hub

Released: 2023-11-07

The new Food Price Data Hub is now available.

Canadians are currently facing significant food inflation. The price of groceries has risen more sharply than the all-items Consumer Price Index (CPI) since December 2021, with staple food items, such as bakery products, margarine and other edible oils, and dairy products and eggs, showing some of the largest price increases.

Industry, Science and Economic Development, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and Statistics Canada have partnered to make timely data on food prices available to consumers in one central and easy-to-access location. The new Food Price Data Hub provides Canadians with more detailed information on food prices and helps consumers make informed decisions about their food purchases.

The hub will be regularly updated to show the latest trends in food inflation, along with the average price of select staple food products. The latest release of the CPI is available from the hub, which also includes links to various resources, such as articles that provide analyses on the sources of food inflation and its impact on consumers.

The hub also features information on the year-over-year changes in the prices of goods and services along the food supply chain, from farm to fork, from the price of agricultural products sold by farms to the price of diesel fuel used to transport goods to the retail markup at grocery stores.
