About the industry

Ontario’s food and beverage processing sector is the largest in Canada – accounting for 37% of the industry’s revenue in the country.

The sector has more than 4,000 establishments in the province, employing over 125,000 people. More than 90% of its establishments employ fewer than 100 people and one quarter is located in rural communities.

There are several aspects that provide the Ontario food and beverage processing industry with a competitive advantage, including a rich agricultural base, a large consumer base, an educated workforce, adequate infrastructure, competitive costs, and a cluster of research and innovation opportunities in the sector.
