Canadian Grocer's March/April 2021 issue is here!

The latest industry insights and analysis are only clicks away!


Buy local isn’t a new idea, but in pandemic times it’s a movement that’s gaining momentum.

The idea of "local" pops up frequently throughout the March/April issue. It comes up in our story on vertical farming where consumer demand for local produce, our writer was told, is contributing to the growing popularity of the agri-tech solution.

Local also came up in our Produce Operations Survey  where 75% of retailers we surveyed said their local produce sales had increased over the past year.

And local came through loud and clear in our interview with Calgary Co-op CEO Ken Keelor. Keelor told us that as a community-based organization, local has been at the forefront of Calgary Co-op’s business since its inception 65 years ago.

Also in this issue, we sit down with Tom Szaky, CEO of TerraCycle, to discuss Loop and the future of sustainable grocery shopping. Plus, a look at the winners of the 2021 Product of the Year Canada Awards.

All this and much more in the March/April 2021 issue of Canadian Grocer. Happy reading!
