High consumption of bread
Hectic lifestyles and busy work schedules have fortified the demand for frozen bakery products like specialty breads, desserts, sandwiches and rolls, donuts, bagels, and various others in North America.
The region is a leading consumer of bread. For instance, in the year 2017, the total bread sales stood at US$3.5 billion in Canada. Increasing efforts made by the global and Canadian industry players to meet the changing food preferences of the consumers towards convenience food items has supplemented Canada frozen bakery industry forecast.
Government control on trans-fat
In the year 2018, the Ministry of Health, Canada announced a ban on partially hydrogenated oils or PHOs- which is the largest source of industrially produced trans fat in food. This led to the dismissal of the use of artificial trans-fat in bakery items like pastries, muffins, and donuts that are sold across the country. This showcased the significant testimony to the nation’s responsive governance as well as the companies, while helping transform the regional frozen food production sector.
Online purchases during COVID-19
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the frozen bakery industry in Canada witnessed considerable gains, with people storing food items at home that had a longer shelf life. This helps them restrict the need to step out of their homes again and again.

The continued dependence on online purchases will subsequently support the easier access to and the sale of frozen bakery goods in Canada.
The introduction of advanced technologies for bakery manufacturing has propelled the production and distribution for frozen bakery items globally. Witnessing the changing consumer demand scenario and the need to address the food trends, industry players present in Canada are adopting advanced solutions to enhance their offerings.
