This ongoing University of Guelph - Dalhousie University joint project has been ongoing for 9 years. According to the report for 2019, overall food prices are expected to rise up to 3.5% in 2019 with fresh vegetables expected to increase up to 6%. Again according to the study, this translates into a $411 increase in yearly food expenditures for the average Canadian family.
This study is quite thorough and makes for interesting reading with its many statistics, trends and predictions. The simple takeaway from all of it is the cost of food will continue to increase. With that in mind, it makes sense more than ever to take some control of your food supply and wherever possible grow your own. Growing your own vegetables is not rocket science and with a little hard work and dedication, you save big on the cost of your fresh vegetables.
