Food, drink industry in province sees decline in April

  • Print

Manitoba’s food services and drinking places industry saw its sales decline in April after two straight months of rising revenues.

Statistics Canada said today that April’s sales were down 1.7 per cent from the previous month — $128.5 million versus $130.8 million.

But despite the poorer month-to-month showing, April’s total was still a 1.6 per cent improvement from April 2012’s tally of $126.5 million.

Statistics Canada said Manitoba was one of eight provinces to see sales decline from March to April. It’s decline was the fourth smallest among the eight.

Canada saw its sales fall by 1.4 per cent to $4.47 billion in April from $4.53 billion in March.

The food-services and drinking-places industries includes full-service restaurants, limited-service restaurants, drinking places and special food-services operations. The latter sector includes food-service contractors, caters and mobile food services.
