The COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions that have been imposed around the world have had real impacts on the food industry, both here and elsewhere. The majority of the countries with which Canada maintains economic exchanges have been affected by the pandemic.
Several consumers have continued to buy products from abroad, but they now do so differently. It is by taking into account the trends specific to the different phases of this pandemic that we can project the likely changes in exports and consumption.
Nearly a year after the appearance of the virus, it seems relevant to focus on the consumption habits that have changed since the start of the pandemic and to put them into perspective.
