Food Waste in Canadian Homes in 2020

Canadians are planning more and wasting less.

In June of 2020 the National Zero Waste Council commissioned market research to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on consumer behaviours and attitudes related to food and food waste.

While COVID-19 has had, and will continue to have, a profound impact on the everyday lives of Canadians, the good news is that the introduction of physical distancing and stay at home measures may have had a positive impact on food management in the home – with Canadians planning more and wasting less.

These positive actions and mindsets suggest we have made a small but significant step forward in the fight against food waste in Canada.
