As We Get Older The More We Seek Locally Produced Food


A recent survey found that the older we get, the more likely we are to source food and other goods locally.  Many prefer locally grown food and more and more of us are more inclined to buy other products produced in Canada.

The top five products that Canadians are most likely to purchase from Canadian producers are food (87%), beer (46%), clothing (45%), furniture (38%) and wine (34%), according to the survey of 1,100 Canadians by, a cash-back shopping site. Respondents were less likely to buy Canadian electronics, appliances and cars.

The survey also found the older people get, the more loyal they are to homegrown brands. The 45+ crowd is the most likely to buy Canadian brands: 95% versus 89% of those 35-44 and 88% of those under 35. Regionally, people in Quebec and Nova Scotia are most likely to say they always make a point of buying Canadian.
