Why participate to the trade mission to Eastern Canada?

Often neglected by Quebec companies wishing to develop new markets, the Atlantic Provinces have an interesting potential, given the geographical and cultural proximity. As in Quebec, 31% of households in the Atlantic Provinces spend more than $ 150 a week on groceries (Vividata, 2019). The Atlantic Provinces have some culinary culture, with 55.7% of the population willing to pay more for good quality food. A majority say they like to cook, are inclined to try new food products and enjoy eating in a good restaurant as often as possible.

Introduce your products to buyers of local retailers and benefit from the regional decision-making power they have to strengthen your pan-Canadian presence. To learn more: Regard sur le marché des provinces atlantiques
