Ontario Agricultural College food economist Dr. Mike von Massow spoke to The Canadian Press about the concentration of the grocery market in Canada amid soaring food prices.
Von Massow said Canada’s grocery sector is highly concentrated, but it’s also competitive.
“I would argue that consolidation provides economies of scale,” he said.

A professor in the Department of Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics, von Massow researches retail and restaurant food demand, supply chain management, and value chain structure and performance.
