Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

The distribution of animal food production in Canada largely follows population patterns, favourable climate conditions for growing grains and the distribution of animal producers. Pet food producers tend to locate near or around heavily populated areas where there are likely to be household consumers with pets. Animal feed producers locate closer to livestock, poultry and pork growers in order to reduce transportation costs. They also situate in areas dominated by crop production, particularly of grains like corn, wheat and barley, which are widely used in feed production. This divides industry producers between two areas of the country; provinces with large metropolitan centres, such as Ontario and Quebec, and strong agricultural centres, such as Alberta.
