Berry good:Growing health-consciousness among consumers will fuel industry demand
Fruit & Nut Farming in Canada Fruit is a standard part of the average Canadian consumer’s diet; therefore, demand for the industry’s products tends to be stable. Shifting consumer preferences based on health, dietary and taste trends have caused some product groups to grow (e.g. blueberries and grapes) and others to recede (e.g. apples and strawberries).
International trade has been both a blessing and a curse for the industry in recent years. The United States is the largest destination for exports due to its sizeable consumer market and its proximity to Canada; these factors ensure Canadian fruit farmers will have a market among US consumers in the near future. Aside from trade, other competitive factors will come into play in the next five years. New technological developments, like automatic harvesting equipment, are making appearances on the market, decreasing reliance on human labour.
Industry operators grow fruits such as apples, pears, berries and grapes, in addition to nuts such as walnuts, chestnuts and hazelnuts. Operators sell their crops to downstream processors, fresh produce wholesalers and retailers or export them to foreign destinations.
