Food services sales drop in January

  • Print

Manitoba was one of four provinces to see a slight drop in sales in January for its food services and drinking places industry.

The latest monthly figures released today by Statistics Canada show industry sales dipped by 0.2 per cent to $129.4 million from $129.7 million in the final month of 2012.

It was the second smallest decline among the four provinces that posted weaker sales, and followed two consecutive months of strengthening revenues.

Canada’s industry saw its sales rise by 0.5 per cent to $4.50 billion from $4.48 billion in December.

The food services and drinking places industry 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.
