Give Your Tradeshow Presence a Competitive Advantage

Covering every aspect of the Canadian food & beverage industry, SIAL Canada provides the perfect platform for US exporters to meet with key Canadian buyers. 

Canada's geographic proximity, similar consumer preferences, and relatively affluent consumers are among the reasons why Canada continues to offer excellent export opportunities for new-to-export small- and medium-sized U.S. companies. The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) entered into force in 2020, replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The USMCA will make a good trade relationship even better, ensuring preferential market access for US farm and food products.

U.S. Food & Agricultural Product Imports to Canada, By the Numbers

  • U.S. Consumer-Oriented Foods - US$17 billion (2020)
  • U.S. Processed Foods - US$14 billion (2021)

By the year 2026, Euromonitor projects that retail sales in the packaged food market in Canada will reach US$71 billion, a growth of 20%, or US$11.8 million.
