Claiming Canada's Global Plant-based
Protein Opportunity

With world food demand both growing and changing, the need for plant-based ingredients continues to outpace supply. This has led to an innovation and production race amongst global agricultural leaders like never before.

Protein Industries Canada is helping our country claim the global leadership position and reap the extraordinary benefits that leadership provides. Our active projects are expected to strengthen Canada’s agrifood sector and economy, including through the following:

The creation of
6,200
New Jobs (based on 15 analyzed projects)
The creation of more than
380
New Products
The creation of more than
170
New Processes
The creation of more than
160
new pieces of intellectual property
A reduction in environmental impact in
62%
of said active projects

Together, we can achieve more. With the global plant-based food market expected to reach an approximate $250 billion CDN in sales by 2035, Canada is on the precipice of a significant opportunity. We anticipate the sector can supply the ingredients for 10 per cent of the world’s plant-based food and beverage products by 2035—a $25 billion boost to our economy.

Achieving this requires all of the parties involved to embrace working together to build an entire industry and self-sustaining ecosystem that can produce returns for all far greater than what can be achieved alone. That’s why, with the consultation of businesses and organizations across the agrifood sector, we initiated the creation of a Roadmap to achieve this $25 billion goal.

Building on our reputation

Canadian agriculture has a long history of global success. Whether it be our track-record for producing some of the world’s highest quality cereals, our creation and global expansion of the canola industry, or our reputation for adopting and championing the most progressive and strictest production and quality assurance practices, Canada has established itself as a true agricultural powerhouse.

Canada’s agricultural past paints a picture of an industry with the experience, expertise and underlying fundamentals required to achieve continued greatness for decades to come. Greatness that can and should include global leadership in plant-based proteins.

This is why Protein Industries Canada exists today. To achieve global plant-based protein leadership, we are focused on facilitating the evolution of the Canadian agriculture industry, growing our food processing strengths and diversifying our agrifood value chain, to allow for the creation of a self-sustaining protein ecosystem. And more importantly, we are here to ensure that the right companies, people, technology and resources are in place and working together toward the single unified goal of Canadian global protein leadership.

To date, the outcomes of our efforts provide proof that what we are doing is working. But this is just the beginning. We are only part of the plan and solution; the Road to $25 Billion will only be achieved when all members of the Canadian protein industry do their part.

An industry that works collaboratively achieves more.

Our Future is Promising

Canada’s plant-based protein future is bright. Reaching the sector’s goal of achieving a $25 billion plant-based food and ingredients market by 2035 can lead to:
