Big missed steak: Poor growth strategies by enterprises will dampen revenue growth

The Meat, Beef and Poultry Processing industry in Ontario has experienced sluggish performance over the past five years. Industry operators slaughter animals and then process or render the carcasses to be sold to retailers, wholesalers or directly to food establishments. As a result, the success of the industry is grounded in the performance of these downstream industry operators that demand processed meats and poultry. A tepid growth in meat consumption, the decline in poultry prices and the inability for Ontario processed meat products to compete with other provinces, have hurt the industry. Over the five years to 2023, the industry is expected to more.
