Food & Beverage Processing Industry; Growth Pathways to 2020

This applied research project answers a simple question: how big will the Manitoba food and beverage processing industry be in 2020? Given the current, considerable size of the sector, finding that answer requires some effort. 

Within the scope of this project, four objectives are pursued:

  • Identifying trends in sales and distinguishing key drivers of the FBP industry;
  • Envisioning two to three scenarios for industry growth to 2020;
  • Identifying opportunities and challenges across the various industry sectors; and
  • Noting public policy implications related to any issues which may inhibit growth.

This report describes the research methods, findings and concludes with growth pathways for the FBP industry to 2020.
