Food Forward: Canadians Want Convenience Without Compromise

Busy lifestyles, long daily work commutes and hyper-connectivity continue to influence Canadians’ daily food and beverage choices, opening up massive opportunities for Convenience & Gas to become a food-forward destination. Join Kathy Perrotta of Ipsos as she outlines key socio-economic and macro trends shaping consumers’ consumption choices and examines how the Convenience & Gas channel performs against these drivers to establish a framework for growth and future success.
