A new survey points out that
Canadians find food prices more difficult,
and vegetables are one of the main concerns.
A poll showed that
87% of respondents believe that
food prices are rising faster than household income.
Inflation in October was 1.9%,
while food prices rose 3.7% from a year ago,
with fresh vegetables and fruits rising more than 7%.
The survey received responses from 1,509 nationals across the country in early December,
and found that 69% of respondents ranked vegetable prices as their first concern,
followed by 60% of fruits,
and 54% cited meat products as their primary concern.
Just over half of 53% of respondents said
said they intentionally changed their habits to save money.
One of the most common ideas is to eat less in restaurants
and pay attention to discounts or coupons when shopping.
