How much is your annual grocery bill?

A new report estimates the average Canadian family will pay about $411 more for groceries and roughly 150 dollars more for dining out next year.

The joint report by the University of Guelph and Dalhousie University estimates overall food prices will rise between 1.5 and 3.5 per cent next year.

Vegetables will see the biggest jump in price, an expected four to six per cent due to weather-related poor growing conditions and increased demand for alternative proteins.

Meat and seafood prices are anticipated to fall for the first time in the report’s nine-year history.
