ACORN National Action to Stop Grocery Giants from Price Gouging!

Grocery giants in Canada are on their way to set a new record - $6 billion profit in 2023 - as millions of low- and moderate-income people continue to struggle to put food on the table. In fact, food retailers are now earning more than twice as much profit as they did before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grocery prices are increasing at the fastest rate in more than 40 years. As this happens, Canadian families are spending less by decreasing the quantity and quality of food people are turning to food banks. 

The grocery industry is highly concentrated. Canada has three main grocery giants that rule the prices - Loblaws, Sobeys and Metro - each of them with more than 1,000 stores and a range of brands under their banner. This concentration is hurting competition and pushing up the prices. 

We need fair food prices! Join us to demand action.
