Newly released market study: Processed Meat and Seafood in Canada

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jan 18 2016

In 2015, processed meat and seafood recorded current value growth of 4% to reach sales of C$6.4 billion. Category growth was largely driven by increasing health-consciousness, with many consumers now paying more attention to nutrition. As a major source of protein, meat and seafood are regarded as important foods. Canadian consumers are increasingly gravitating towards products with a high protein content as protein is perceived to contribute to both weight loss and satiety. Demand for protein-rich foods is being seen across several consumer groups, including millennials, the elderly, vegetarians and vegans.

Competitive Landscape

The competitive landscape in processed meat and seafood remained fairly fragmented in 2015. Maple Leaf Foods Inc led the category (in GBO terms) with a 26% value share, followed by Olymel SEC/LP (7%) and Maple Lodge Farms Ltd (4%). The leading position of Maple Leaf can be attributed to its leading Maple Leaf and Schneider brands, which both held a 13% share of value sales. The company is also active in terms of new product development and marketing. For example, Maple Leaf Foods has launched a campaign urging Canadians to ditch their mobile phones in favour of another handheld device - hot dogs. The campaign is a continuation of Maple Leaf’s new "Dig In!" platform, which brings together the Maple Leaf, Schneider and Maple Leaf Prime brands under one creative umbrella for the first time.
