Food inflation overall is expected to rise between 1 and 3 per cent next year, says Canada’s Food Price Report, which was crafted jointly for the first time by researchers at Dalhousie University and the University of Guelph. Canadians now spend about 30 per cent of their food budget on eating out and consuming prepared meals. The report suggests different parts of the country will feel different impacts at the checkout line next year.
